I needed to get links to some good Java, J2EE tutorials and was surprised that daniweb::Java didn't have a thread on that..

Of course it's easy enough having Sun provide tutorials on most things, there might be some covering specific topics in better ways.

Comments
Nice job with collecting all this links

Yes, it would be good to have a thread for this stickied at the top like some of the other Software Development forums.

How is it like the moderators find this thread not up to the mark, unnecessary or simply haven't seen it !

What you trying to say? You been expecting to see more comments, or your post to be added to the top list as important post in the section so everybody can see it and go there if they just looking for quick tutorials?

I was hoping, for others' sake that this will be made a sticky post so all can get this basic info easily; and for my sake that others will add some more links to good tutorials that I can refer to. :).

What you can do is add link to this tutorials into your signature.
However problem with this links is that due time they will change ( new version of java will bring new tutorials, website removed etc) and that would requere somebody to check on them regulary, let say every 2 months

Sounds very logical !! May be same can be communicated to C/C++ forum moderators as well.. :)

To be fair I did not like it the first site. Yes it does have many books but many of them are out of date.
Second side link does not work

Thanks for the feedback about first one. The second link doesn't work due to a typo.
Here is the updated one: www.onlinecomputerbokks.com/

not only are many books out of date, I also seriously doubt the publishers like the way this guy aggregates their content without giving so much as a source reference.
