How do I get the Java API sources?
While there seems to be a way to clone the whole repo, described here, I just need just the Java API files, nothing more. (Hint: traffic limit + slow connection)
Now, here is the whole git repo, but where are the plain Java API files? Or are they at a complete different location? Someone an idea? I’m not that much a git expert.

If all you are trying to do is poke through the code, I recommend Google Code Search. For example, I refer to the Android source code frequently, and I don’t have it downloaded.
And if all you want to do is develop android applications, you don’t need any of this; just download the SDK
Following worked, with the help of this question:
git clone git://android.git.kernel.org/platform/frameworks/base.git cd base git tag -l git checkout android-2.2.2_r1
And then we get a nice directory:
tar cjf android-java-2.2.2.tbz2 core/java/android
And then we get a nice bzip2-ed archive:
android-java-2.2.2.tbz2, just 1.8MB 😉
If u just need to see or download a specific JAVA API file from android.. then just refer this site
this is has repo of all android release.
