    You just hover over say "String" in your program and  anew winow appears with
    your API, you pressF2 and you can go into that window and click on the links there.

    If you just place your pointer inside class name in the code say String
    and press Shift-F2 then API winodw for String will apear

    Well, I meant String just as as an example - if you place your cursor (I mean keyboard focus)  on ArrayList
    and press shift-F2 then you'll see API for ArrayList , and this way for any standard Java class
