Source of Hashtable / interface question

I know I used an editor a while back that let me dive in to the details of Java source files.
My current one does not automatically dive into source files if they are in .jar or .zip formats. SO...question is, where can I go to look at the source of Hashtable ?
My thing is, I want to see exactly how it is returning an enumeration of keys, from keys(), since enumeration is an interface...I'd like to see what object is being created which is being that I can undertsand WHERE the hasMoreElements() is being implemented...
If you can answer either question, please reply!

In my installation of Sun's JDK 1.4, I have a file called in the root directory. Perhaps you have a similar file. If so, just unzip it and take a look.

Thanks! I found a src.jar for JDK1.3_01 that I THINK was installed when I installed Forte - havent used it yet - but it must link you to the details of the standard library files !!!

It contians source, and can be unzipped using popular zip programs (may need to change name to or jar utility, if you prefer.
I agree. Here's the link:
