I haven't found one good Java tutorial. C++ has a lot of good tutorials and they are free.
What should he do to find api and/or library references so he can make programs?

This is a beginners language, it is suppose to be a good pre-cursor to Java:

Java indeed has some "safety nets" connected to it. Personally, I think this is a good thing for newbies. I understand that there is a flip side to this coin (but maybe you shouldn't worry to much about "bad habits" before you have had any chance to develop *any* kind of habits at all?). But Java is today used for introduction to programming at many universities, probably for this reason. And, the documentation and newbie information for Java is kind of massive online. Java is a good newbie language! :)

IMHO: Learn the methodology in objective programming, learn to "think the think". This will benefit you whatever language you later will dive further into. Learn how to crawl, then how to walk the walk, before trying to walk at the catwalk. Java is a good stepping stone for this IMHO.

:)
Indeed, learn to program before you begin to learn to hack.

If you want work, learn JavaScript, CSS, HTML, MySQL and PHP...

This will allow you to work on most web development teams.

For proper coding, Google "Thinking in C++", that will give you a free C++ book, which covers OOP coding.
