    Where To Start Java?

    I'm sure this has been asked more than once...so, I'll keep it really short.

    Newbie with VB6 background. I'm tired of the MS software trap. I have been
    studying Java for a short time, and wish to pursue it more seriously. Have
    gone through "The Java Tutorial Second Edition," by Mary Campione & Kathy
    Walrath. Good book.

    Still, I would like a book that mixes their insite in Java along with more
    Hands-On Development. Maybe a project that I build to demonstrate the given
    lessons.

    I've seen the various Java lesson on CD offered by KeyStone Learning
    Systems.

    Any comments on KeyStone, or any recommendations on some good hands-on
    tutorials. Time, not price, is the only issue.

    Thanks,
    Tom Seroogy

    Tom,

    Please check out the "From Scratch" series by Jesse Liberty. Each book in
    the series teaches you skills while you build a working project. The book
    also has a long chapter on analysis and design. Here's a description of the
    Java 2 From Scratch book.

    Java 2 From Scratch
    by Steven Haines
    Que 1999 ISBN 0789721732

    Learn all the critical programming concepts and techniques associated with
    the language in the context of creating a functioning Stock Market Tracker/Analyzer.
    Each chapter builds on the previous with a casual tone, in-depth examples,
    and detailed steps to ultimately create a working stock market tracker. Key
    areas addressed are user interface design, SWING user interface, Internet
    communication, file I/O, painting/drawing, and brief introductions to JDBC
    and RMI.

    Here's the URL to their site: http://www.libertyassociates.com/pages/Books.htm
