You are basically asking "how do I learn to use libraries when 
programming" - and that is not a suitable topic for this mailing list 
either. It isn't actually suitable for any Openjdk mailing list as these 
lists are about development of the OpenJDK, not about programming in Java.

There are various resources on the web for learning to program in Java, 
which will cover using the libraries. And of course there are many 
excellent books on the subject. The javadoc describes individual API's 
and where necessary how they interact with other APIs, but it won't tell 
you in general how to combine various entities as you give in your example.
