I don't know a book right now, but Eclipse includes a lot of documentation (see Help / Help Contents).

I am not able to resolve the below error when I try executing the project.
java(jre) libraries include as default in a jav project.I am using eclipse 3.1 with java 1.4.2_06.

The resource is not on the build path of a Java project

What could be the possible cause.

Take a look at your project build path. (right click ---> properties). One or more of the entries should be flagged with a yellow warning icon. This will tell you what needs changing.
