Hi,
I am using Eclipse 3.4.0 (Ganymede).
I am trying to find out how the feature of displaying the javadoc in a tooltip works.
For example, when I open a java source code file with the java editor and position the mouse pointer over a method name, a tooltip pops up showing partial javadoc for that method.
I would appreciate an explanation of how this feature is implemented.

Thanks,
Avi.

How it is implemented? That's probably hard to explain. But Eclipse is open source, so if you really want to know, you could get the source code of Eclipse and start digging into it.
