I am using the eclipse IDE and want to view the source code of the ejb.jar in my eclipse window. Where do i download the souce code for EJB from...

Like for the other java classes I have the rt.jar which contains the source code. What about EJB???

Cheers
Thomas

If you look at the javax.ejb package, you'll see that it consist just of interfaces and exceptions; there are no regular classes. The implementations of those interfaces are provided by the EJB server. If you have access to the source of the server, you can check it for classes that implement those interfaces, but most likely you won't get much of value out of those.
Why are you interested in the source, that is to say, what do you hope to get out of it?

When you say "rt.jar", do you really mean "src.zip"? rt.jar contains classes needed at runtime by the JVM, but no source code, while src.zip contains the source to the class libraries.
