[cross-project-issues-dev] Linking to platform javadocs

Hi all,

I am currently struggling with how to properly link the javadocs of our plug-ins (org.eclipse.draw2d.doc.isv and org.eclipse.gef.doc.isv) agains those of the platform (i.e. org.eclipse.platform.doc.isv) and I thought I could find help here.

Currently, we have a javadoc.options file within each of our doc.isv plug-ins, which contain link statements of the form:

That seems to work in principle, but of course has the disadvantage that it links our javadocs to an outdated platform javadoc (namely that of the last release). I would rather like to link it to the current platform documentation instead, i.e. 4.2 for the Juno. Unfortunately no Juno help pages seem to be online yet.

When linking from org.eclipse.gef.doc.isv to org.eclipse.draw2d.doc.isv, I further have the problem that there is no Javadoc for Draw2d contained on currently, so I may not even link to an outdated version (we had problems in producing javadoc with the old build system, so javadoc was not published properly for the indigo releases) and will have to wait for the being first populated.

How is that usually handled? Is the populated initially before the final release? Is there a way to provide a stable URL to point to the eclipse help of the latest release in such cases?
