    Default Java Documentation Class Hierarchy Browser (I'd like to find one :\)

    I often find it helpful to picture the hierarchy tree, basicaly I want to be able to specify a class and see all it's children in a hierarchy diagram, I found some tools that allow me to see all the parent classes of a class but that doesn't help me much. Can anyone help?

    Are you asking for a tool that would search thru the JRE's rt.zip file for all classes and display the children (extends or implements) for each class?

    I don't know of a tool that does this (which does not mean that it does not exist), but I've seen some decent tree-like diagrams of some of the standard libraries such as the I/O libraries in the excellent Core Java books, vol I and II by horstmann and Cornell.

    Thanks for mentioning those Fubarable although i'd prefer something i wouldn't have to buy. And as for your question Norm: yes but I want the output to be a nice graphical represantation of the hierarchy tree not a list or something like that...

    Sounds like a nice student project. Are you up to it?
