If you already know C++ perhaps you can skip introductions about
programming in general. Maybe the books "Core Java Fundamentals" and
"Core Java Advanced Features" may suit your needs. Both books are
written by Cay Horstmann and Gary Cornell. The coding standard they
propose is a bit "irregular" and seldom used, but the contents of these
books will definitely teach you Java, in a pace you can select yourself.
All items of interest are covered, starting from primitive type sizes to
XML, TCP/IP, threads, etc. etc.

I'm sounding like a salesman.... Anyway, these are definitely not the
best books about Java, but I'm sure they can be of help.

I liked the O'Reilly _Programming Java._ I still use it for reference.
If I had it to do over, though, I might try _Core Java_ from Prentice
Hall instead. The _Core Servlets & JavaServer Pages_ was very good,
although Volume II hasn't been published yet, and the author (Marty
Hall) hasn't even responded to my email asking when it might become
available.

Correction: It's called _Learning Java_.
I still use it for reference.
