Well, you could start with the Sun Java Tutorial.

Welcome to JavaRanch!

Beginning steps:
  • Bookmark the API Documentation.
  • Downloaded and install the JDK (Java Development Kit).
  • Run a Hello World program.
  • If you have any problems with the above steps, post back here and someone will help you out. (If it's an installation issue, be sure to mention which operating system you're using.)

    If you're teaching yourself Java, your best resource is going to be a good introductory book, like Head First Java. There are some good free resources on the web (like the Java Tutorial that Henry mentioned above), but buying a really good book will save you a lot of aggravation in the long run.
