Agreed. For people who've never done Java before, I've found - and
this is the approach we now use at work - that putting them in front
of the Sun^W Oracle tutorials[1] is a great way to get started. We
also put someone more experienced in the room to answer questions, if
you don't have one of those - well, that's what the Internet's for :-)

HTH,
