The Java development kit documentation comes with a lot of sample code. Also, Sun offers the Java Tutorials in both html and compiled help formats for free. If you only worked through Sun's examples, you'd be busy for a long time. There are other sources out there too, but Sun's the place to start in my opinion.

Welcome to Java!

There is a great free java book at www.mindview.net. Click on books and download Thinking in Java 3rd Ed by Bruce Eckel. There are a ton of examples there.
