How to get rid of java.lang.String refs in JavaDoc

I am running javadoc and trying to make it look a little closer to the Sun APIs where methods that return java.lang.String to not appear as "java.lang.String", but as "String". I am pretty sure this is a classpath issue, but I just can't seem to figure out how to do it.

The javadoc tool will give full classnames for all classes that it can't link to. So, if you can tell javadoc where the javadocs are for java.lang.String, it will create an actual link to it and just display it as "String". I couldn't tell you how to do this though, as I usually do javadocs with Ant. Sorry. But read the javadoc documentation and you're good to go.
