What is the relationship between the ruling class and warrior class in Japan and Europe? I know that in Japan the Samurais were the warrior and ruling class till the Edo period right? but what about Europe?
Europe was pretty much the same. The monarchs would be comparable to the Emperor and the knights,earls,princes, etc. would be comparable to the samurai.
In both societies there was a merchant class, and a serf class.
Pillars of the Earth, by Ken Follett, is an excellent historical novel to help you understand medieval society -- in this case based in England, but you get glimpses of France and Spain in the 1100s, too.

Did they ever get in trouble like were they were abused?
