Best way to learn class relationships

I am new with Java and find it very difficult to know which classes to use for what!
Even with the use of the HTML Java Specification API reference, i still find it very diffcult to do the simplist things!
For instance, in C, i can use a getc and put every character in an array and do things very logically!
But in Java, i havn't got a clue where to start!
Are there any tools that scan the complete API documentation, including return types, comments ect?
Or is there a good book that shows a hierarchy of classes that typcially work together like in a 'pattern' or template?
Thanks for any ideas!

i'm new too to it, but have no special programming background. My autodidactic way is to read tuts and books: in those i find examples that perform things - with classes or groups of classes.
That's the way i keep beeing introduced to classes and to what they perform. Sun java online tutorial is good; Bruce Eckel's Thinking in Java is a free, great book, specially because its c/c++ developers oriented.
hope this helps
