Javadoc fails to find classes in packages generated automatically by Web Service Client or JAXB Binding tools.
if you use Web Service Clients and/or JAXB Bindings, NetBeans puts generated code in the "classes" folder so that this code is available during compilation and
run time, but it doesn't appear in the project Source Packages node.
If, now, you run javadoc (Generate Javadoc pop-up menu command on project node) javadoc fails finding the packages related to W/S and/or JAXB Binding
It is a responsibility of the W/S support to provide proper source roots to project source path. The javadoc target
generates documentation for everything available in that path. Reassigning to websvc for evaluation.
*** This issue has been marked as a duplicate of 96235 ***
issue 96235 is about missing javadoc for JAX-WS API classes in editor's code completion.
This issue is about impossibility of including generated classes in javadoc generated for some project (project context
menu -> Javadoc action)
This can not be fixed for 60 without changes in particular project types, which is contrary to WS separation that were
implemented recently. We need an enhancement to project infrastructure to specify a specific "hidden" source type that
wouldn't be visible in UI (wizards, customizer), but available for other features like code completion, javadoc,
moving opened issues where TM != dev to TM=TBD
Need to investigate why jaxws-2_1-api-doc.zip contains only javax.xml.ws package.
Caused likely by JAXB separation.
Oops, I see what's the problem: Project's Javadoc doesn't include sources generated by wsimport, wscompile etc.
This is more serious problem and we need an ability to hook into javadoc ant task in build-impl.xml file.
Temporarly, this can be fixed by modifying build-impl.xml, which is not a nice solution.
*** Issue 108470 has been marked as a duplicate of this issue. ***
Generated sources should be included to javadoc automatically.
Hopefully, the fix for issue 105645 will resolve this problem as well.
One of the workaround for this now is to add the folder where sources are generated (e.g.
build/generated/wsimport/client) to sources list (in Project | Properties | Sources).
Nevertheless, in that case, in 6.5 you may got to an ugly Loop problem described in issue 153104.
Fixed for JAX-WS.
Still needs to be fixed for JAXB.
See the feature 105645.
