Jacob,
Please specify what IDE you are inquiring about. This is going to be a different answer for different tools.

Two way that come to mind (there are probably more):

1) If you have a variable, call it aaa, of type A, you could type "aaa." then do CTRL-SPACE and a pop-up list of all public methods and fields should show up.

2) While editing A.java, right click and select Source > Override/Implement Methods. The resulting dialog box contains all non-private methods for all superclasses of A.

This can become even simpler with nWire, which is a code exploration plugin for Eclipse. It has a dynamic view which will automatically show you the associations you're looking for.

Check out the demo at: http://www.nwiresoftware.com/
