AJAX Driven Javadoc Website - javaref.com
by Tim O'Brien
Features I'd like to see:
1. ...a way for component authors to publish and update versions of Javadoc, by supplying SVN URLs.
2. ...a mechanism for viewing a specific version of a component's Javadoc.
3. ...a Maven 2 plug-in that would let someone create Javadoc in the same style with lnks to the javaref.com site.
I think that like the centralized Maven repository, we need more efforts to create hosted reference content for Java. A site like Javaref.com is a good start towards an indispensible everyday tool. Keep it coming.
|I still like old Plain Old JavaDoc better.|
This seems to be a huge pain to use. I want to be able to see everything at once regarding a class, not have to tab thru a bunch of tabs using my mouse. If I'm doing programming (and if I'm using Javadoc, obviously I'm programming), I don't want to have to remove my hands from the keyboard at all. If I need to find something on the javadoc page, I can hit Ctrl-F and type in what I need to find (if I'm using Firefox, don't even need to hit Ctrl-F).
