For information about OpenJDK 6 source code, please see - section Code. For source code matching the executables you downloaded from a third party, you'll have to inquire with the party that provided you with the binaries. The OpenJDK 6 Project provides source code, rather then binaries.

What will be the result of building OpenJDK 6 source bundle
openjdk-6-src-b24-14_nov_2011.tar.gz, 43.62 MB from ?

I am looking for java files for all classes from JDK (I need them for debuging)

In above archive there are no java files, will they appear after build?? Building it is not so easy, I failed with it.

Thanks for reply.
