Hi there, I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good online Java course. I've been looking around, and I'm really surprised at how few Java classes there are compared to C# and even C++. I took a Java I class online from the University of California, Irvine, but now I'm shopping around for Java II. Any suggestions will be welcome.

Thanks!

Welcome to JavaRanch.

Try searching for "java tutorial" with Google and you'll find a lot of tutorials. See The Java Tutorials by Sun, for example.

This may be too basic if you took a Java class already, but there's the Java College / Cattle Drive right here at JavaRanch.

Thanks, I'll check out those suggestions. I was sort of looking for an actual online class, though. The weekly deadlines help me stay on track. With self-taught tutorials, life tends to get in the way of the class.

University of Pheonix offers a Java II course. They are a bit $$$ if you ask me. You'll have better luck with these types of schools and "trade" schools than you would with typical go to class universities.

The Cattle Drive can be done either way -- free, self-taught tutorial with practice "assignments" or paid, instructor-assisted learning. The assignments seem simple, especially at the beginning, but you learn good coding habits along with the java, and the assignments progress from simple to servlets & jdbc.
