Hello,
I use Eclipse/Java with Linux mint.
I cannot find any documentation (javadocs) for the classes/methods
I use?

I've read that you have to specify attributes for a JRE:
(windows - preferences - Installed JREs - Edit..)

Do I have to Add External JARs?? (javadocs.jar??)
Can anybody give me a hint about that?

Thanks a lot,
John

Is the Installed JREs entry for that pointing to /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle/ or /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle/jre/? It should be the former.

Hello,
thx!
It's unfortunately /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle/

However in the Linux terminal I have the following path:

/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk-amd64/docs

Is it possible to include this path somehow?
There must be a way to show the Javadoc within the dashboard.

When try to open the API-documentation with shift+F2 I receive the following comment:
(with HashMap() i.e.)

Quote:

The documentation location for HashMap() has not been configured.
For elements from libraries specify the Javadoc location URL on the properties
page of the parent JAR ('/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk-amd64/jre/lib/rt.jar")

Does that mean that I have to allocate the Javadoc to every library manually??
