Finding Libraries & Contents of JARs

I need to perform some string manipulations somewhat more complicated than just finding an occurence of a string, and simple replacement.  (Just examples.)  I know there are a lot of methods available "somewhere" in my Java environment, and I am sure there are Java string libraries "out there."  But, I don't know how to efficiently search for them.  

Question #1 - In general, how should I search for library functions - string and otherwise -
                     in my Java environment?
Question #2 - Specifically, how can I find what string methods exist in my Java environment?
Question #3 - Please recommend some Java reusable code libraries "out there."

>>Question #1 & 2
Download the WinHelp or HTMLHelp version of the JDK API's documentation at http://www.confluent.fr/javadoc/indexe.html.
It's searchable.
(For String: http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/api/java/lang/String.html)

Doubt if you need more than the standard JDK String API's

I suspect you're right that the standard libraries are sufficient.  But as to question #3, and being more specific, here are some examples of the type of method that I need from time to time, but doubt will be in the JDK libraries.

* Create a popup sticky note on screen.
* Return array of system tray objects.

Basically, I suspect my examples use the standard library components as building blocks, creating something a bit closer to a utility.  In my searching, much to my surprise, I'm having a lot more difficulty finding Java libraries than I anticipated!

Thanks for Q#1 & #2 info.  I'm looking into it now.

Oh, you mean general libraries. Thought you meant String manipulating libraries...
Have a look at: http://java-source.net/
