Description jschek 2007-11-26 18:48:48 UTC
The Library Manager will return an error "The javadoc root does not contain the index-files folder or the index-
all.html file." when the javadoc root is a UNC path. If I add the same javadoc through a mounted drive or a local 
path, the Javadoc works fine.

Javadocs added using a UNC through the Java Platform Manager seems to work fine.

The easiest way I found to recreate the problem is to add the JDK javadocs to a newly created library (this is a 
known, working javadoc that should always succeed). Adding using the UNC will fail; adding using a local path will 

\\mymachine\c$\Development\jdk\  FAIL
C:\Development\jdk\ SUCCESS
