    Default Java Source Package (Sun)

    Hello

    I recently had some point about Java development on OpenSuse in the
    Beta-List, and it looks like I have to add another one.

    I need the Java sources to add it to my IDE in order to get all
    Javadoc-Codeassist. This is usually in a file called src.zip and after
    some research I found out that on linux, this file is usually just
    inside the jde folder.
    Well, not in OpenSuse 11.2 were I installed the whole Java-thingy and no
    source is available. In Kubuntu I could install a package Java-Source,
    but I cannot find anything like that here.

    Any advises.

    P.S. my intention was to use my laptop as a machine to develop
    especially because of all the nice features available via Yast. But I am
    running in a lot of trouble recently, especially when it comes to usuablity.

    11.2 is pre-release/beta/release candidate software and as such you
    should anticipate LOTS of usability troubles..

    if you want to code and produce java applications without those
    troubles you should use stable, proven *production* level tools.. SLED
    comes to mind.

    In a RC I'd expect everything to be in place, and only bugfixes to this.
    I dont think I will get a Java-Source-package when the final release is
    out. But I hoped so, thats why I posted it here.

    OH! i didn't realize you knew it hadn't been released yet, otherwise i
    would have said: 11.2 is pre-release/beta/release candidate software
    and to ensure other testers see what you have to say, or answer your
    questions please use the pre-release forum:
    http://forums.opensuse.org/pre-release-beta/

    however, if you have a bug that needs to be reported then you need to
    know that just posting to *any* of the forums here is not the way to
    be heard....instead you need to get involved and log a bug report as
    noted here:
    http://en.opensuse.org/Testing/

    Thanks. Will do. The reason why I put this here was because, as
    mentioned, I didnt relate this to be an prerelease issue.

    still, it would nice to fix it prior to release, maybe?
