Lost my javadocs
I opened eclipse in a new workspace and now my javadocs are gone. When I hit f2 all I get is the method and signature such as:
void javax.swing.JComponent.setBorder(Border arg0)
with no javadoc explanation accompaning it. I looked in the help and it said to go to properties javadocs and I did that and found the package-list in docs/api and set that but still my javadocs are not showing up. Maybe I should just upgrade eclipse, I am a few versions behind. But still, this has me puzzled.
There are two simple ways to solve the problem one is to generate the javadoc from the source files and other is to find the javadoc and link it with the project.
To create the javadoc take "project" and "generate javadoc", To link a javdoc with a project take right click project and then "properties" and then "javadoc loaction" You can even add source and javadoc to a jar file by right clicking it
No, I am not talking about generating my own javadocs. I am talking about the baisc java javadocs.
I went to properties---> javadoc location --->
Eclipse seemed to want a folder with package-list in it so I found it in
docs/docs/api folder under jre1.5.0_07.
That seemed to work.
new eclipse version
We just began using the new eclipse version and it is very nice, if you get the chance i would upgrade :)
