Introducing Java
This article will introduce the Java programming language through the study of an applet. You will learn how a Java enabled browser controls the flow of work in an applet, how to build a simple graphical user interface and how to handle user initiated events like pressing a button. You will learn how to read data into an applet and how to parse this data.

JavaToys is a development resource center dedicated to providing links to on-line information relevant and useful to the Java developer. Here you will find links to Java tutorials, reference materials, news, white papers, developing tools, frequently asked questions and more.
The Java Tutorial
The tutorial reflects both 1.0 and 1.1, with some material on post-1.1 features. It's organized into trails -- groups of lessons on a particular subject. Currently there are trails for Java newbies, general Java programming, applets, essential classes, user interfaces, networking, a big example, security, internationalization, native interfaces, JavaBeans, and updating to 1.1+.
OOPas to Java Tutorial
Designed to introduce the Java language to programmers who have a good grasp of Object Oriented Pascal. Many of Java's more advanced features such as exceptions and multi-threading are not covered here. But, this tutorial should give a programmer the ability write solid object oriented programs equivalent to what they could write in OOPas.
Thinking in Java
Download a pdf/word file of an entire Java book for free. Bruce Eckel, who writes for Web Techniques magazine as their Java columnist and has a number of books to his credit, decided that the best way to promote his new book would be to give the electronic version away for free.
