I wanted to know about some book which can master me in JAVA.I know nothing about java but have a nice experience in C++.Also suggest me a JAVA compiler to begin with.
Compiler: DrJava, or Eclipse
Book: Effective Java Programming Language Guide, 2ND EDITION
Thanks for the answer
@billycro - I have very less knowledge of java but I always thought that Eclipse is an editor ?

looking for java in c++ forum?

Check your PM. I have sent you some information regarding some Java books I used to help me. They are really good resource for beginners!

As far as a compiler? Do you mean an IDE?

If so Eclipse or Netbeans would be my suggestions.
