Hi Nicole,
At CVU, we offer a one-year course.  It starts with Javascript and Google
Scripts (first quarter of the year), then moves into Java for the rest of
the year. As for resources, we have a textbook, but it's not used
regularly.  More for reference and examples.  Most of the materials are
teacher-created.  We use the Eclipse IDE for Java development (although I'm
considering switching back to BlueJ).  For JavaScript, we mostly use
Notepad++.  I'd be happy to provide more info and share resources if you
want to call or email me off-list.
