Are you looking for the javadocs or the specification?

If you want the sources for Servlet API, you shuld go to and download the Source Code Distributions. Tomcat versions came along with a certain version of Servlet API and JSP Spec
Servlet/JSP Spec Apache Tomcat version
2.5/2.1 6.0.x
2.4/2.0 5.5.x
2.3/1.2 4.1.x
2.2/1.1 3.3.x (archived)
so download the sources for your tomcat implementation and you'll be able to see or debug in the javax.servlet.* classes as well.

pravin kantipudi , one of the most important rules on JavaRanch is "be nice". Please be sure to adhere to that rule.
