Re: [wtp-dev] Java Doc

From my observations, the eclipse documentation is generated as part of the sdk build process.  The JDT and platform javadoc are generated in the below plug-ins:


Both of those plugins have their own custom build.xml included in the plugins, so when sdk is built, the build script uses the already provided build.xml rather than auto-generating one like it does with all the other plugins.  WTP could do the same and copy their build.xml & buildDoc.xml and substitute in the classpath, package names, source folders, etc (maybe using the javadoc wizard to get all that information).    After the javadoc is generated, it is put into the eclipse help system.  So all eclipse does is publish their entire help system.

Re: [wtp-dev] Java Doc


I agree it should be a downloadable zip, and published. I assume the build script will need to be updated with the javadoc ant task. I did a manual generation of our java docs using the export wizard in the workbench and noticed the generated html files have absolute paths. The links will only work on the machine that generates them. Does anyone know what the base eclipse process is? We could always wrap our java docs in a war, or have a link on that points to our build machine. What do you think?

I believe it should be a part of the regular build process.  However, it could make sense to do it only for M/S builds.

We can publihs them on the web:
      e.g. maybe?

Of course we can also zip them and make then available with the build on the downloads page.

Is java doc generation going to be part of the build? If not,, is there (or going to be) a standard place where we should publish them?
