Where to find Java JDK Source Code?

I would like to see what a method in the Java API does. So I want the JDK Source Code.
Before I re-installed Linux I had the

src.zip
package with all the official source code in it. I just had to tell Eclipse where this file is and I could see the code. But now I don't have the file anymore...

So the question is: Where can I find it?

Answer

You haven't said which version you want, but an archive of the JDK 8 source code can be downloaded here, along with JDK 7 and JDK 6.

Additionally you can browse or clone the Mercurial repositories: 8, 7, 6.
