Try reading this . The java documentation is in html format and you will need a browser to read it. However some of the documentation is availiable in pdf format and a winhelp format has been made available.

What help are you looking for?
http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.3/docs/api/index.html
This document is the API specification for the Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition, version 1.3.1.
http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.3/devdocs-vs-specs.html
This document tells about different API developer documentations.

Go to this page, click the download link. Download the zip file anywhere. Double click the downloaded file. An installation program will ask you where you want the files, and what kind of icons you want created. You are provided with a program grou that holds 6 functions. Very cute.

Now I have to go play with it.
