I download Jcreator and it said 'to make use of the java documentation, you need to have a recent version of JavaDoc'. What are these? and where can I get them? and what will I use these for? I allready have the API.

The Java API documentation is generated by a tool named "javadoc", and so the API documentation is sometimes called "the JavaDocs". If you have the JDK, then you have the javadoc tool, and if you have the API documentation, then you have "the JavaDocs". So I think you're OK.
