Default Learning Java (Book suggestion)

I am interested in learning Java. I have object oriented programming experience, and am looking for a good language reference book. Could someone suggest something that isn’t for new programmers, but is for new Java programmers?

Mastering Java 2 by John Zukowski is a good all reference and tutorial.

Thinking in Java by Bruce Eckel is excellent.

Beginning Java 2 by Ivor Horton is a great tutorial but not really useful as a reference book.

Once you have the basics then two great books for J2EE are:

Java 2 Enterprise by Mark Wutka.

Professional Java Server Progamming J2EE (this is a Wrox book, so I'm not sure if it is still in print).

The book I've been using is SAM's teach yourself JAVA in 21 days, available from Amazon or Barnes and Noble. Its specially made for beginners.

Not meaning to toot the horns of these guys too much, but Horton's "Beginning Java 2" book is very good and covers some topics other beginning books don't, like XML.

You may also want to check out http://java.sun.com/docs/books/index.html. Sun originated Java, and they put out some decent books on the subject. There are also free tutorials online at java.sun.com
