Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Javadoc generation / package-list

Hi Eike,

I think the easiest way will probably be to download and unzip the latest org.eclipse.platform.doc.isv bundle (the one in your target) during build and to have the javadoc tool link offline to it. I have built-in the same for Draw2d and GEF (where the doc plug-ins specify an optional dependency to the org.eclipse.platform.doc.isv bundle so the maven dependency plug-in can be used to make it available during build-time). We don't use Ant's javadoc task but invoke the javadoc tool directly (from ant), but you may take a look at the options we use for linking to the platform doc:

Hi Ed,

Thanks for your answer but I don't understand how the javadoc tool in my Ant build can resolve such a link to the package-list file in the Platform docs ;-(

Is it possible that you're talking about links that you *manually* write into your own docs? The ones I'm talking about are created by the javadoc tool and that requires access to the package-list files.

Our Java code uses many Platform interfaces and classes and when we would like to have hrefs to the Platform Javadocs
in our generated Javadocs. The Ant script we're using contains this:

<javadoc ...>

<link href="" />


Unfortunately no clickable links end up in our docs. I have the feeling this is because the help center servlet
renders a full frameset when <javadoc> requests the package-list file (instead of returning just the file contents).

Is there a way to properly link with other doc plugins in the shared help center?
