I am new to Geotools2 mailing list. I have a question
on modeling feature to feature relationship using
GeoTools2 packages. I would appreciate if you
could give some hints on this subject.

I guess you're on your own for the moment, there is no explicit
support for it at the moment, but you can use the flexibility
offered by the Feature attributes: they can be whatever you want.
So, an attribute could be another Feature, or a collection of Features,
thus you can model both association and composition. GML can even
store these kind of data I guess (not sure, but it's a hierarchical persistent
storage, you'll have to ask GML guys about this). Besides this, there
is no explicit support for Feature relations in Geotools2, at the moment.
I'm curious: what are you looking for, more specifically?
