Hi,

I am having a hard time locating the sources for Java 7 on Oracle's website. Anyone got a quick pointer ?

Thank you.

It is part of the the normal JDK download: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/index.html
And there is the OpenJDK release: http://jdk7.java.net/source.html

Welcome to the Ranch

Do you mean the code of classes like String? If so, look in your Java installation folder, where you will find a file called src.zip. That code is all in there.

Thank you. I was used to always having to dig around on the Sun site to find the sources separately Indeed, just get the jdk and after extracting there is src.zip in the top folder.

You’re welcome
The src.zip file has been there for as long as I can remember.
