Using bog-standard Juno/4.2 to do some Java development. Because the Interwebs connectivity from this local network is slow and expensive, I've downloaded the JDK's zip file for their API's javadoc, and configured Eclipse to look in that local zip file for javadoc source instead of pulling it from Oracle. Works great.|
Just one hitch. If we get a little javadoc popup and want to read it in something wider than three inches, ew click the little "open attached javadoc in a browser". An external Firefox opens a new tab with a URL like
aitch tee tee pee localhost because the forum hates me:49440/help/nftopic/jar:file:/C:/the/path/to/the/JDK/apidocs.zip!/docs/api/java/whatever/Example.html
which is very convenient for looking through cross-references within the browser environment, and exactly the behavior that I want... until I close Eclipse. And then start it back up. And then try to use any of the links between those javadoc pages.
It looks like the listening port (49440 in this example) changes each time. And I totally understand why that's the default. My question: can we override this behavior, and where/how? I'd really like to be able to always listen on the same port every time. (No, it's not going to be a reserved port number. No, it's not going to already be in use, not on this computer.) Some of our API reference tabs stay open across multiple Eclipse sessions, and it'd make our lives easier if they continued to Just Work as long as Eclipse was running.
