From JDK, Closeable.java

But AutoCloseable is located java.lang

How does Closeable know where to find AutoCloseable?

Good question! java.lang is a special package. It is automatically imported whether the class specifies it or not. Other common classes like Integer and String are located in that package as well. That's why you can just write Integer.parseInt("111") without having to import anything.
