You need more specific on what sun package you want. For exmaple, Java Dynamic ManagementTM Kit, you can download from java.sun.com other technology and get its API. You can see one online API from other site:  http://www.ece.uic.edu/~cpress/jmx/jdmk-api/overview-summary.html

You can find the sources (for JDK 1.3) here: http://www.cs.duke.edu/csed/java/src1.3/sun/
download them and run javadoc (as I did ;-)
Note, that it is not recommended to use them: http://java.sun.com/products/jdk/faq/faq-sun-packages.html
Though the sun.misc(Unsafe|Signal) and sun.applet.AppletViewer seems to be more popular (http://www.oreillynet.com/lpt/wlg/5559).
BTW, I use them only to understand how things work but I don't really depend on them in my code.

You can use JAD or other java decompiler decompile that package (and probably its sub packages) and run javadoc on the result.
Those classes are located in rt.jar.
Not sure about the legality of such operation.

Almost certainly illegal i'd guess, and it wouldn't help anyway as you wouldn't get anything helpful from running javadoc on the result

You will get their API and know which methods you can use.

You can get that simply by running javap on the fq class name

Sure, but is it as convinient as having an indexed based html page with related items links as the one javadoc gives you?
