JDK Source on OS X

If you’re lookin’ to get your hands on the JDK source on OS X, you’ll find it in the developer documentation. To obtain said documentation, log into the ADC Member Site, go to “Downloads,” then “Java,” and download the “J2SE x.x Release x Developer Documentation.”

Once you’ve downloaded and installed it, you’ll find the src.jar (not src.zip!) in /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/x.x/Home/src.jar
