My first result of googling "Java modifiers" gave me this.

For why should you use something like this? Check here to learn about objects and I'm sure you will get the answers.
You could start with Bruce Eckel's "Thinking in Java" which is an excellent free book for Java starters that introduces you to object oriented design and programming.

Cheers,
Tamas
