I am trying to learn Java from "Head first Java". I am looking for the API docs the book calls J2SE API. I went to Oracle and I cannot find anything that is supported by the Mac. Can someone please help me with this.

Java 5 is the same on all platforms, so there's no special docs for the Mac. In fact, they should be installed on your machine already; point your browser at
file:///System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.5.0/Home/doc/api/index.html

and
file:///System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.6.0/Home/docs/api/index.html

for Java 5 and 6 docs, respectively.
