Search for Java API at sun's homepage. It's very handy and most likely you will use it often . Here is for an older release:

Hi Megaman,

Tks for your advice and URL.

Some folks suggest me to learn java from "source code to some simple applets". Can you point me where can I find a collection of java simple applets with source code.

TIA

Hi again satimis!

I'm afraid that I can't help you with Java applets in this one. My field of interest is game programming and I've tried, without success, to create game applets in Java, so I would recommend you books as "Java Game Programming for dummies" or something of this sort. However, I think that would be a bit difficult to begin with, but fun if you would like to create games in Java for the Web....

Good luck!

If you have any previous programming experience and don't mind spending the cash, Head First Java is hands down the best Java book I've ever seen. I had Java classes for 2 semesters, and although I did learn something, this book shows you so much more and presents it much easier. Those Sun tutorials tend to be kind of technical and boring (at least to me).

Unfortunately, its about $40 I think, but well worth it!

A good open source tutorial on applets is at http://www.realapplets.com/tutorial

I'd suggest skimming the tutorial at http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial before jumping in to the realapplet tutorial.
