Hi Andy

If you only want to make small changes to .java files, just download the 
source code for those files, compile them with

    javac -d /tmp

and call

    java -Xbootclasspath/p:/tmp YourApp

to try out.

If you don't like the -X option, you can call "jar uvf" to update the 
class files inside rt.jar with your newly built ones.
