    Any good Java Book recommendations?

    I currently work with web technology, such as css, html, and php. I'm majoring in computer science and considering a web dev/software dev career path in the future or even doing something with games.

    My primary focus is to learn programming basics but to use specific technology along the way.

    Can anyone recommend a good Java book that teaches Java basics? I hear Java is the ultimate in scalability and has a high learning curve, so I'd much appreciate it. I'd like to work with JSP apps in the future but for now I think it is better off I learn how to actually code in Java.
