I am working on one project in that we need to use elliptic curve cryptography for message encryption and decryption. i am not getting the source code of ECC so can anyone send me if you have it.
I do not have much idea about the algorithm. please explain it briefly. Thank you.

We don't just hand out code; we are NotACodeMill.
This should help you along a bit. There are some open source implementations, although they appear to be in C or C++. However, it does mention that Java SE has support for it as well: http://openjdk.java.net/projects/jdk7/features/#f73. This appears to be since Java 7 though. If you can't use that then I suggest you check for elliptic curve cryptography java.

Bouncycastle and Flexiprovider are just two. Obviously you are not looking very hard. It sounds like you want to spoon-fed knowledge, code, google results, ..., everything.

It's not possible to provide a lot of detail in forum posts about topics as intricate as ECC; if I was interested in that I'd start reading at Wikipedia and follow some links from there.

The sites mentioned above (OpenJDK for Java 7) and BouncyCastle have implementations (read: source code) for ECC; I don't think either has much explanatory material - that's not what those sites are about.
