After completing Essentials of the Java Programming Language, Part 1 and Part 2 of this training series you should have a solid understanding of Java programming basics and how to use some of the more common application programming interfaces (APIs) available in the Java platform.

With this foundation, you can explore Java programming on your own with the help of the articles and training materials available on the JDC.

In particular, one tutorial you might find the Advanced Programming for the Java 2 Platform a good place to continue your studies.
