servlet-api.jar: Where to get the source code from?

I'm getting started with using Servlets and JSPs.

In $TOMCAT_HOME/lib, I found servlet-api.jar and jsp-api.jar. Some questions:

- Do these represent the latest Servlet API 2.5 (Tomcat version is 6.0.18)? Are they representative, or should I try to get them from Sun (I didn't find anything appropriate at Sun's website, or within my local Glassfish folder ...).

- Also, I'd like to have the matching source code (or, at least, API docs) in order to enhance programming within the IDE. Where to get it from?

Thank you, Robert

The Tomcat site will show you what each version of Tomcat supports.

It also houses the source files.

Tomcat 6.0 implements servlet 2.5 and JSP 2.1

You can download a "Source Code" distribution of tomcat 6 from apache.

Cheers
