Does anyone know where I could find any of the following User Documentation Files (maybe some archive site or edu site that no longer shows up in the search engines)?
jdk-6u7-docs.zip
jdk-6u10-docs.zip
jdk-6u20-docs.zip
jdk-6u26-docs.zip
jdk-6u31-docs.zip
jdk-6u32-docs.zip
It appears that these files should be somewhere about 50MB to 75MB in size.
Furthermore, they may appear as doc.zip, or docs.zip.
Thanks, Tracey
I don't know if Torrent sites are good or (bad/malicious) because I have never used them before, but the Torrent sites offer files with these names that have file sizes in excess of 200MB so something appears to be wrong with Torrent sites (at least for these files).

Go to the standard download site, and scroll down to the bottom. I didn’t think there were that many .zips; I thought it was 1 .zip per version.

Sorry, no good :-(
It appears that this link only shows the last/latest version.
If anyone knows where they are, I would like a download link to them.
Many web sites have links for these files, but they just that refer back to Oracle's web site.
I have tried searching Oracle's site for the specific file names in a variety of ways, but the files are never found.
Thanks anyway, Tracey

There's a page where you can download previous releases of the JDK.

Note that the docs are not always updated for every minor release. So some of the files you're looking for might not even exist. The Java API doesn't change with minor releases, so there will be no difference in the API between for example 6u30 and 6u31. Is there a special reason why you need the documentation of so many minor update releases?
