Does anybody know of 37 Java API's, that Oracle claimed for infringement by Google ?
Can anyone point me to a source.

Presumably all the java.* and javax.* packages in Java 5.

Welcome to the Ranch

When you come to legal things like that (and they are surprisingly common), and you find that Googling doesn’t give the details you want . . .

Try
oracle claimed infringement by Google
as search terms in a Bing search engine, find the first hit to fosspatents, and look for exhibit J. Documents read out in court may have a status where anybody is permitted to read them, but that varies from country to country.

I tried Bing after your suggestion, And found it with "oracle claimed infringement by Oracle fosspatents".
ExhibitJ points me to a legal source, But It is still unclear to me what're the exact API's.
The Oracle filings are not document in that site.

BTW, I found fosspatents site highly biased towards oracle with invalid claims and inaccurate technical explanations.

Isn't those classes are released with OpenJDK, with GPLV2 with Classpath Exception license.

Android is not based on OpenJDK, it is based on Apache Harmony. But that's irrelevant in this case, as it's about the API, not the implementation.

I didn’t look to see whether any of the websites was biased. You will have to go through the documents found, and the API index, to see whether you can find anything corresponding to the exhibit.
