Resources for Java programming

Java tutorials can be found in many websites, but many of them are outdated and some of them are just not good enough. Not that all the resources I mention are great, but I have tried to be selective. I may update the post as I find new materials on the web. The material also covers Java IDEs and toolkits particularly the ones that are meant for web development and programming (even Ajax is included). Suggestions for improvement and better coverage are welcome.
