Look for a file called inside your JDK* installation directory. That contains the source code
*Not present if you downloaded only the JRE. But then as a Java developer you cannot live without the JDK

Note that the code in is not the complete source code of the whole JDK, it's only the Java source code of the classes and interfaces in the standard library.

If you really want all the source code, including the C++ source code of the JVM, then look at the OpenJDK website.
