    I'm looking in O'Reilly's direction, but anyone have suggestions? Maybe even an online tutorial is better?

    sun has a great site full of java learning stuff - if you have a PDA you can download them and read them that way - that's what I did

    Alright, how about a good Perl tutorial? :) I've already read O'Reilly's Perl.

    Thinking in Java <-- :werd: Great book! Also, there's this funky book out by O'Reilly called Head Start Java. It's strange, but good. Oh, and Code Notes makes small yet very clean books. Very easy to follow. My recommendation is that you go down to a Barnes and Noble and check out the books for yourself. I've been going to the "rich man's library" every other day now checking out. Believe me, there are a lot of bad/shitty books out there. There are also good books too.

    I have the Thinking in Java book in PDF format. I posted a link a while ago, but it's a no no.

    Good timing on the post (and I found the HTML version of Thinking in Java - its available in electronic format on the author's site).

    I get to convert a couple PHP web apps I did at work to Java (um, I was prototyping :)). I'm kind of curious to see if I can rewrite my template system (which seperates the HTML from the PHP) to Java. I think I'm going to need a LOT of loud angry music to make this work...
