I personally used to always use https://www.codecademy.com/. It is a free code teaching website, and if you are truly struggling with a problem it always helps to get a few more examples to look at.

You can also use http://www.pythontutor.com/visualize.html#mode=edit for problems that you really don't know what is happening and the visualizer will allow you to see every line of code as it is executed. This won't work for "all" problems but it is quite useful. Just make sure to select "Java" as the language you are coding in.

It depends on what you are looking for. If you are looking for Documentation on Java then you should use https://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/api/. If you are looking for more problems you can use one of the many sites that give you practice problems such as https://projecteuler.net or https://open.kattis.com. Lynda.com is great for fleshing out concepts in java such as Methods, variables, etc.‚Äč

If you have no idea about how to solve a problem then I would suggest stackoverflow.com to begin with. If you want to start from the basic then you should try to look up for the documentations of API of Java.
