    This forum is not a bad place to start. Many of the threads here deal with beginners
    problems and in many cases the complete source is available.

    Get a *good* book. Does anybody in the forum know any good books for introductory programming with java? I am at a loss here, I fear.

    The best thing is to read an entire book on Java. The book I used was This is the new edition for Java 1.5.

    The step by step guides are good for starting but for going to the next level you should read an introductory Java book like this one.

    Also, I would recommend to read a data structures book after you learn Java. Mark Weiss' book on Data Structures w/ Java is a good start. The best is "Introduction to Algorithms" by Cormen.

    The reason you should learn data structures is because you will use them throughout your programs. It also teaches you to be aware of efficiency in your programs and about designing solutions to problems.

    For more help,

    Go get the way-cool (and award-winning) book called "Head First Java" (O'Reilly), It's written in a very friendly, hip style, but when all is said and done, gives you a serious Java intro.
