We have a book "Java for RPG Programmers", which might help.
Do you have a specific reason to learn Java? If you're looking just to branch out from RPG, keep in mind that Java is considered legacy by many these days. If that's your reason, I'd suggest something like Python, Node or PHP.

Subject: Experienced RPGLE developer to finally learn Java
As a small intro, I have been on the IBMi platform (and predecessors) for well over 20 years now.
I am very proficient at RPGLE and DB2 SQL.
I understand ILE concepts well.
I am looking for best online resources to begin learning java on the platform.
I began looking at visualAge but it appears it is no longer supported and was wondering if RDI is an adequate IDE for java on the i.
I best learn by example and comparing an rpgle pgm to a java pgm example would be most appealing.
I appreciate any guidance you can provide.
