You already have it in your JDK installation directory, it's in the file src.zip.

I already checked in src.zip. For e.g. src.zip doesn't include /java/activation folder.
Where can i get source code for files present in /java/activation package.

Don't you think you might have mentioned that, thus saving the need for Jesper to suggest it?

Since there's no java.activation package in the JDK, that's not surprising.

If you're talking about javax.activation, have you trird searching the net? I found the source code through Google in less time than it took me to type up this response. The search terms I used were javax activation source

I apologize for my mistake, i didn't mean /java/activation.
I was referring to /javax/activation package, which is part of rt.jar; which is the reason for mentioning the rt.jar.

Although i was searching for "source code of rt.jar" and was unable to find the source code for /javax/activation package.
But when i tried with /javax/activation directly i found the source code.

Can you please tell me why source code of /javax/activation package is not part of src.zip or Am i still confused ?

Did you search the net for that? The few results I glanced through seemed to indicate it's a licensing issue.
