I would like to learn java. Can anyone recommend an up to date java book. There seems to be many java versions, if that is the correct term of course, such as jdk 5, jdk 6 etc. Which one is good to learn.

I posted this in a different thread but that thread is very old and I didn't think anyone would respond so I made this thread.

My recommendation is first you use the Notepad or Notepad++ to write Java codes.Because it provides the most important Javas' basic knowledge.Specially java byte code & other stuff.Once you familiar with Java then you can use Netbeans,Eclipse or any other IDE.
