Welcome to the Ranch!

You can read them online here, but I don't know where to download them.

Or you can download them from here: Java SE 8 Documentation.

Do you need the documentation specifically for Java version 5? That's a really old version that hasn't been supported by Oracle for years.

Paul refers you to the Java 8 API documentation, but beware that that also includes everything that has been added in Java 6, 7 and 8 - not everything in that documentation will work in Java 5.

You can find information on old Java versions in the Java Archive on Oracle's website.

Oops... I didn't notice the "5" in the original post.
