Callooh callay! I have OpenJDK

I'm using OpenJDK because I want access to the JCE code to see why my system is behaving the way it is. Since the official JDK Reference Implementation for Java 7 is entirely OpenJDK [1], this seems reasonable.

Remembering I have OpenJDK on my Fedora VM (albeit 1.6), it was just a matter of downloading the source code like any other package. After doing so, I get this:

[phenry@localhost Code]$ rpm -qa | grep openjdk

Hoorah! There it is. But where is the actual source file?

[phenry@localhost Code]$ rpm -ql java-1.6.0-openjdk-src-

(Posting this because I keep forgetting all that RPM goodness [2]).

[2] A good crib sheet on RPM Commands.
