    How to Program Java

    Use Deitel & Deitel's How to Program Java. I learned Java with it and it was very informative and has lots of great examples.

    I have just started learning Java so you might or might not want to take my word as gospel, but according to the book I'm reading, Thinking In Java, you will have an easier time understanding Java if you know C or C++. According to the author though, you don't have to learn either of those languages first before tackling Java.

    Speaking from my own perspective, one of the things I've found that has helped as I've progressed through this book is that I'm already familiar with OOP, having used that as a result of SitePoint's PHP Anthology books.

    My opinion only, but if you already have foundations in at least one other programming language, and not necessarily C, you shouldn't have any problems learning Java.

    Knowing about object-oriented programming will be the biggest help in learning Java. Knowing C/C++ may help a little bit because of the similar syntax in many cases to Java, but it's not required. I moved from VB/ASP to Java fairly quickly.

    Funny covers, especially the one with the little boy .

    Just a little off topic-note. Programming isn't really my thing. None the less, I'm taking an introduction course to computer science at the university. And in our OOP-course, we use this book. I just wanted to recommend it since there's been a lot of talk about Java in this thread. It's a really good book teaching the principles of OOP in a very good and educational way. Everything from syntax, common used packages, class design, good object interaction and so forth. A great book if you want to get your hands dirty with object oriented programming!

    Our next release, before XML & DHTML, will be The Search Engine Marketing Kit. You might have already noticed, we launched a new blog on the topic.

    The DHTML book is very,very close to production now, we're in the final stages of editing. XML will probably take a little longer after that.

    DHTML is being printed. Past customers, as always, will get a first crack at it.

    Following DHTML will be "Firefox Secrets"

    "No Nonsense XML Web Development With PHP" is still a little bit away.

    Does SitePoint have some sort of partnership with O'Reilly? I have noticed quite a few Sitepoint books on their site and recently found this page: http://sitepoint.oreilly.com/

    Yes, we do. As I said earlier in this thread, O'Reilly are our distribution partners in North America - they distribute our books into retail stores. They also do this for a select few other publishers (like Pragmatic, Syngress, and No Starch Press)

    I'm just curious as to what the Firefox Secrets book can possibly offer. I mean the browser can only do so much. Sounds interesting...

    Well an open source web browser can do quite a bit, that is if SitePoint deeps into the code. And I'm awaiting the DHTML book!

    It's written by Chu (redemption) so I'm sure there are a ton of useful tidbits in the book

    It is intended as a comprehensive guide to Firefox.

    There's a lot of information about customising it with the preferences (including hidden preferences), toolbars, sidebars and bookmarks. There's information about features that are not really hidden, but you probably never noticed yet. Like Vinnie said, 'a ton of useful tidbits'. There's also quite a bit about themes and extensions including information about lots of extensions and an accompanying CD containing a bunch of themes and extensions.

    It would be awesome if SitePoint released a book that covers theory behind web design. Something similar to Dave Shea's new book.
