Hey cheif. Not really a Guru myself (got's questions but who doesn't)
Java isn't to hard to get started. They are lots of books on the subject ranging from about $10~$50. The one I started with like 3 years ago is a little dated now so probably lot better ones out there.
Just make sure to start with Java. Not javascript (completely different).
Also do not pick up one that's a "In a nutshell" or "reference guide", as thous really aren't written on the basis of teaching Java.

I hope that helps, even if only a little.

Go to this link and download Sun's tutorials. While you're there download the
complete API documentation as well, it's worth the few megabytes.

kind regards,
