Java 3D API Tutorial - Source Code?

Hello! I dove into Java 3D a couple of nights ago, quickly coming upon the official Java 3D API Tutorial located here. It's a great series, but it doesn't mean much to me without solid example source code. Yes, I saw the link on that page entitled "accompanying source bundle", but that simply sends me to the Java 3D download center. I tried every link reasonable on that page, including the 1.5.1 Implementation Documentation, but even that seems to be only a collection of links pointing to the class database. That's great, I'll need that too, but I'm still missing the example source code. Can anyone tell me where to find it? Maybe I missed a folder in the Implementation Documentation or something, I just don't know.

    Try here. I think the source code you are looking for is here at the bottom of the page under example programs source code.

    Thank you! However, Appendix A of Sun’s Tutorial (bundled with Chapter 0) lists the example programs supposedly included in the source, and it just doesn’t seem to coincide well with the link you provided. I mean, it’s great to have any repository of source code at all, but I’m baffled...if that is the proper link, why did Sun’s website point me to their own completely irrelevant download center?
