I liked Head First Java, and Effective Java is probably the best Java book out there. Sun's Java tutorials are pretty good (and their proposed coding standards actually make sense, imo): http://download-llnw.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/
After using NetBeans until they dropped UML, and after a brief stint with IntelliJ, I too ended up with Eclipse. It makes up for the bloat with all the facilities and the time-saving it gives you (although I do miss IntelliJ's refactoring). I'd also recommend getting familiar with Maven.
