Check out the answers to Questions 13 and 14 at JavaRanch's very own SCJP FAQ.
The keywords are listed here.
And as Angela Poynton explains at the JavaRanch FAQ, in answer to the question, "Are true, false, and null keywords?",

"true", "false" and "null" are reserved words, so even though you cannot use them as variable, class or method names, they are NOT Keywords.
