Can anyone recommend some good books to learn Java programming with?

    I'd like to learn Java programming so I can develop cross-platform
    applications (for Windows and Linux at least) and was wondering if
    anyone here would be kind enough to offer some opinions on any good
    "self-learning" books for this.

    Though I've done IT support for many years, I have no programming
    experience. So obviously I need something that starts at the most
    novice level.

    Ideally something that would cover novice through advanced would be
    nice, but I'm open to multiple books at different levels too.

    One program I'd like to develop would use an icon in the Windows system
    tray - so something which also covers Windows OS specifics like that
    would be great.

    Thanks very much for any advice!
