My personal advice is two fold:

1) Get Java In a Nutshell  (O'Reilly Press)  and use a decent editor (like Notepad++ or EditPlus - both freeware/shareware and powerful) and learn the LANGUAGE, compiling, jaring, etc.  I'm talking primarily command line utility pgms to do calculations, etc just to learn the language, handle I/O, etc. 

2) Then as you get comfortable with the Java command line programming and its environment,  bring Netbeans onboard and start branching out to web apps, ejb's, etc. You can start looking at the  more advanced implementations of java (web apps, J2ee apps, ejb's, entities, xml, etc, etc, etc) and you will do much better if you are not getting confused as to 'how much of it is java and how much of it is netbeans'. 

The fact that people confuse java and netbeans is evident by how many posting are done on this forum that occur because a professor assigned a simple program to his class while they are using netbeans as the default IDE for the class. Many of them don't know the difference.

In looking for books for netbeans, keep in mine that it changes so fast that books have a hard time keeping up.  And, with regards to Netbeans, old books are basically useless with new versions.  The netbeans creators change the product based on constantly changing market needs.  And an old netbeans book (and old tutorials) are many times just plain useless.

"Learning Java" is a huge, massive undertaking (because when people refer to "java" they normally are refering to anything and everything under the 'Java umbrella'.)  "Learning the java language" is very easy (especially if you are remotely familiar with C or C#).  And once you have a good foundation in the language, then learning all the different uses of the language (ejb's, swing, command line, servlets, jsf, jsp, xml, etc, etc, etc) will come together much quicker any you will have a much better understanding of both.

just my 2 cents.....

Please friends, I really need books/ebooks on Netbeans for (beginners to intermediate, then to advance). I really need your help.

For Java:

The best (and more complete) one I know: The Java Tutorial (http://docs.oracle.com/javase/tutorial/)
IBM has also a good site with tutorials in almost every TI area (programming, databases, operating systems, etc). Check for IBM Red Books.

For NetBeans:

NetBeans documentation web site: http://netbeans.org/kb/index.html
