OS X Java 6 update 5: how to reconnect the source… « A Wicket Diary

How do you get the source again in your IDE (in my case Eclipse Indigo):

  • Download and install the javadeveloper_for_mac_os_x_10.6__10m3425.dmg from (free registration required)
  • Install the client update (comes from the automatic update functionality in OS X), it doesn’t matter in which order you do these two steps)

Next run the following commands in a terminal:

cd /System/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/1.6.0.jdk/Contents/Home sudo ln -s /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/1.6.0_26-b03-384.jdk/Contents/Home/src.jar sudo ln -s /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/1.6.0_26-b03-384.jdk/Contents/Home/docs.jar

Eclipse will now be able to find the sources for the Java classes.
