what do you need to learn, java as a whole or what each method means in dwarfcraft.
Java as a whole. ...By which I mean programming as a whole xD
Is there a website I can go to for the basics so you don't have to teach me every itty bitty little thing?
Well google is your friend generally the sun/oracle site has some good tutorials on everything (i usually find it on google) or if your prefer a more interactive way i suggest TheNewBoston or NewBoston on youtube he also does some great java tutorials.
Also i've never tried it but ppl on IRC may give some great tips too.
