Take a peek into theAPI JavaDoc. In the top-left corner is a list of packages. You can see how Sun organized things.

Bookmark that documenation! (or the version that matches the JDK you use) It's a fantastic resource, and it's worth spending some time just snooping around for interesting looking things.

A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi

Also spend some time learning about access modifiers (public, private, protected, default).
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
