Seeking Java Book Advice

P: n/a
Ken
Hi.

I'm an experienced C++ programmer/OO designer who now needs to use
Java on my next project. I've never programmed in Java, and I am only
vaguely familiar with it (I know what bytecodes and JVM's are, I know
that an Interface is a class with no implementation, and I know that
derived classes either extend the base class or implement it if it's
an interface--but that's about it).

I'm looking for some excellent books on Java. Ideally one would be a
great for reading cover to cover and a second would serve as a great
reference book.

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Ken

I believe that the book Just Java is targeted for someone like you -- it
just focuses on Java without trying to teach you programming, etc.
