    'Java In A Nutshell' by David Flanagan (O'Reilly books) is a good basic reference. 'Thinking In Java' is a reasonable free book to learn from, and Headfirst Java has a very good reputation. Don't forget the Java Tutorials.

    To become fluent in a computer language demands almost the antithesis of modern loose thinking. It requires many interactive sessions, the hands-on use of the device. You do not learn a foreign language from a book, rather you have to live in the country for year to let the langauge become an automatic part of you, and the same is true for computer languages...

    How long is a piece of string?

    It's impossible to answer your question because it depends on so many factors such as, your previous experience, your aptitude, your intelligence, the amount of effort you are willing to put in, what you want to do with the language, how the language evolves etc etc.

    I've been coding in Java since 1997 and I still don't know all aspects of Java. In fact Java is expanding and diversifying at a faster rate than I can learn so I probably know a smaller percentage of the whole language + libraries than I did 10 years ago.

    It's here on codeguru . BTW his name is Bruce Eckel and whilst I agree it it is a good book and I've recommended it many times myself for the beginner, it's starting to show signs of age now.
