Karl, The command line for running javadoc for packages (on windows) is: javadoc -sourcepath c:\scdj\suncertify\src -package suncertify.db suncertify.server suncertify.client Just place all the packages you want processed after the '-package' option. You can specify documentation for each package by including a file called 'package.html' in the source directory and placing the text you want in this 'package documentation' between <BODY> tags in the file. About importing classes, both methods you mentioned are both legal and allowed. It is only advised that you use the explicit <code>import java.util.Vector</code> so that anyone can tell at a glance of looking at your source exactly which classes you used. This is not compulsory. Whatever approach you chose its important that you remain CONSISTENT in its use throughout your project. Akanimo.

Karl, Just create a file called 'package.html' in the folder where the source code for the package is. i.e for a package called suncertify.server (whose *.java files are in c:\scdj\src\suncertify\server ) you would create the file in this directory. Then open the file in text mode (just change the file extension to '.txt' when you finish change it back to '.html') and type: <body>TYPE THE COMMENT FOR THE PACKAGE IN HERE <body>. Thats all! (remember to rename the file to '.html') When you run javadoc you should then be able to see documentation for the whole package. Hope its clear? Akanimo.

Hi, I'm little bit confused now. I've already submitted by assignment on thursday. But I used KAWA IDE to generate javadoc. I just placed all the java files in a folder and ran Javadoc from the IDE. It created all the HTML files including index etc. But I don't have HTMLS on Packages. Is that OK ? If anyone knows that is O.K. please reply back. That would be GREAT. Thanks, Ravi.
