I have looked through the exsiting questions, and found the comments under
No javadoc with Jdk 1.5
Javadoc using code complete unavailable/does not work in v3.1
Both of them say to go to the jre, edit it, and select the src.zip file
for rt.jar (and presumably the other .jar files.
I used the standard eclipse installation.
I have several src.zip files for various parts of the eclipse product
But I can find no trace of the src.zip for rt.jar.
I presumably am missing something obvious. Where should I look for the
proper src.zip? If it is not there, is there a sensible place to download
Using the instructions in the message with the subject:
What Javadoc URL field?
I have downloaded the documentation.
a) I still can not see the sources, which would be helpful.
b) Although the windows->preferences->java->jre... editing javadocs
pointer points to the javadoc on my machine (which opens fine in firefox)
I am apparently missing whatever technique one is supposed to use to
actually open the javadoc in eclipse. I would settle for triggering my
browser to open the correct piece of javadoc.
