hehe, I've had my part of beer drinking this weekend :-) don't worry
it's just that I'm working on an other project of mine and I happen to
be at my desk right now...

there are other sites to find artifacts but that one is best, it tends

not all artifacts have sources/javadoc available in the central repo,
you can just download them from the site of the project and attach
them to the lib as you do normally in eclipse

or you can browse the repo and look for a version that has sources
