The documentation of each JDK release contains a page called something like "New Features and Enhancements", which lists the changes from the previous release. You can find links to the documentation of the various releases on this page.

If you are interested in when a particular class was added to the JDK, check its javadoc - each javadoc page tells you the JDK version in which it was introduced.

Dot releases (e.g. 1.4.2) do not have any API changes over the respective base release (e.g. 1.4.0).

I don't think the documentation for old JDKs is still online, but can you download them from the archive area.

J2SDK is the same as JDK, starting with Java 1.2 (a.k.a. Java 2).
