I am working in a GUI. I am using a lots of scripts made from a template I have. These scripts are normal .java files with little functions/methods. In this moment , I need to get some information from the scripts and show it to the user. As the scripts I am using are .java files, I am thinking in the possibility of get the information I need from the javadoc's documentation comments. I don't need all the information supplied by the javadoc. One possibility I already analyze is to work with the javadoc .html files as a text files but i want to know if maybe there is an already existing method in order to extract the information from javadocs?
