I didn’t find the source code for JDK 1.8. I find only javafx-src.zip, which doesn’t have the entire set.

Worked good. I had to move my src.zip file from users > nathan > program files > java > jdk7 > bin > src.zip to workspace > my project. I didn’t even have to refresh the file list (selecting src.zip file to attach prompt).

Thank you so much!
