It's packed in the that comes with the JDK.

On this page at you will find a link for getting the 1.5 source code. Registration with Sun and agreement to a simple license is all that is required. Earlier versions of Java included with the download - I guess it has just gotten too bulky. The for 1.5 is 56MB - note that certain security related classes are a separate download.

I think you should provide a proper name.

I request you to change your display name.

Thanks and Regards
