The only online resources I recommend for Java are:
1) Bruce Eckel's Thinking in Java and
2) The official Sun tutorial
The only book I've found that I like is:
O'Reilly Learning Java
The Java in a Nutshell is a useful reference too.

With that background you should have little difficulty with Java
conceptually., except that Javba uses classes for everythjing and
because of that relies hevily on class methods(statics) to mimic
functions in VB/Python
Otherwise the pain is mainly in the rigours of strict static typing
and getting to know the huge class library.
