rt.jar and other java library source [message #104665] Sun, 25 September 2005 16:56 Go to next message

I am running eclipse 3.1 on Windows XP Pro to do Java 1.5_0_04 (5.0)
development.
I am having problems finding the source / javadoc for the standard
libraries.
I have looked through the exsiting questions, and found the comments under
the subjects:
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
itself.
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
it from?

Using the instructions in the message with the subject:
What Javadoc URL field?
I have downloaded the documentation.
However,
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.

Thank you,
Joel M. Halpern

The src.zip in question is the Java source code distrubited with the
Java SDK. It should be located in your sdk folder if you chose to
install the source when you installed Java.

Hope this helps,

Thank you. It turns out that the installation I had was the jre but not
the sdk. And this and another answer clarified that what I needed was
indeed included in the sdk. So I got that, and things work much better.

Yours,
