Learning Java and Eclipse

P: n/a
Hello. I am interested in learning about and using the Eclipse framework
and Java -- both of which are new to me. I have prior programming
experience with VB.NET and c#.NET; but not Java.

As such, I am trying to find the best approach to learning Java and Eclipse.
My current approach is to first focus on learning Java, then approach
Eclipse after nailing down Java fundamentals. I'm currently working my way
through "Head First Java", then intend to turn to "Eclipse 3.0 Kick Start."

However, I just discovered the Eclipse versions of CodeRuler and Code Rally
with stated objective of teaching Java and Eclipse simultaneously. I would
like to believe that this is a practical path for a Java novice as it could
conceivably shorten the time it takes to learn and become proficient in both
Java and Eclipse.

Here is where I would really appreciate the perspective of those who are
knowledgeable of both Java and Eclipse. Is this really feasible? Is this a
realistic path for a Java and Eclipse newbie? All thoughts are appreciated.
