The link http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp display this information:

"JDK 6 source code is available for those interested in exploring the details of the JDK. This includes schools, universities, companies, and individuals who want to examine the source code for PERSONAL INTEREST or RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT. The licensing does not impose restrictions upon those who wish to work on independent open-source projects."

Please, how to do download the source code Java for research? Can You help me?

Thanks

Most of the classes you need to know about are in src.zip which comes with your JDK. (You will see there is an option to install this with the JDK which is on by default)

If you need to see the source for the compiler and utility programs you can try downloading OpenJDK.
