Parsers are a big subject! This is a great book on the subject, although it covers way more than lexing and parsing. But the other parts are worthwhile reading too.

What source code are you looking for? The code of JavaCC is linked prominently on its home page. If that code is not readable/comprehensible (or doesn't have sufficient documentation for your tastes), check out Antlr and SableCC. Those three libraries are the preeminent parsers written in Java.
