Description Jaroslav Tulach 2010-05-03 09:28:03 UTC
Java IDE without Javadoc for Java packages is ridiculous. That is why I am constantly being surprised that when I install netbeans, I see no Javadoc. 

I understand the historical reason as well, why it is not present in the ZIP/windows distributions. But, as there are JRE javadoc packages on each Linux distribution, I don't know why we shall not use them.

Here is my patch for netbeans.spec RPM to depend on java-javadoc and link to it via proper default_platform.xml file:

This patch will work in any version 6.7, 6.8, 6.9 and also in future (however it may be replaced by standard javadoc provider independent on packaging technology one day).

Consider using my patch in Fedore and Ubuntu packages.

Fixed for deb packages in Lucid.
