    There are many good Java books. Check out the offerings by WROX.

    As for J++ - it isn't current Java. It definitely not J2EE.

    Take a look at Ivor Horton's book:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/...713460-6839018

    Avoid like the plaque the SAMS 'Learn Java in 24 Hours' book.

    For more advanced stuff you should look at Bruce Eckel's 'Think In Java'.

    Have fun

    Hi;

    If you are an experienced programmer you might get by with the O'Reily
    books JAVA in a Nutshell and the companion Java in a Nutshell examples.
    If not try the Deitel & Deitel Java book at http://www.prenhall.com/deitel/.

    Good Luck.

    Gordon
