Don't know where to start

As a Java newbie, I always have problem on 'path' thing.

Please anybody tell me some books/articles to read on?

I want to know how the classloader seeks for file/class/resource so I can figure out how to make a right reference to that thing, to prevent FileNotFoundException or ClassNotFoundException.

Many thanks
