Good way to learn Java programming for beginner?

I am absolutely new to java programming, with no prior knowledge. I have the time, and ability to learn it. I was hoping to also learn j2me, for mobile devices. I don't know what I need to learn to do either. Can someone please, from personal experience, post a good resource for learning java for a complete beginner? Thanks!

    As far as tutorials you can check out suns web page, a good IDE for beginners to java is Eclipse, it has a lot of functionallity that will make your life easier. Also NetBeans is good if you are developing GUI apps since it has a window form builder, that is similar to Visual Studios.

    Does it have to be a book? Java came out as the internet was becoming more popular, so there are a lot of really good tutorial sites out there. I learned a lot from Java Ranch.
