You can download the doc separately. Go to this page, and search for "Java SE 6 Documentation". (I assume you are looking for java 6 docs)

I do not wish to hijack this thread,

It would be good if someone mentioned the command to generate javadoc having the src.zip file in hand.
As far as i tried, it generates the doc for just one file, does not do it for the rest and if it does, does not generate the links properly

granted it would take sometime and its better to download the document zip file from the site than to manually make it, but I was really curious to know the command "javadoc" better.

Scroll down the page. To scroll, use the small down arrow button on the scroll bar or use the scroll wheel of your mouse or hit the End key.
Look for text which says "Java SE 6 Documentation". If you cannot find it, use the browser's find feature (just copy paste the text "Java SE 6 Documentation" and hit enter)
Next to this text is an orange button called Download. Click on it and follow on screen instructions.

It's not easy to generate the documentation yourself from the source code in src.zip that's included with the JDK. I've tried it myself some time ago, but got lots of error messages. You'd better just download it.

Santosh: The documentation is not called doc.zip. You won't get a file named doc.zip.

@Jesper Young
hmm, thats precisely why i want to do it. No error messages can hold me back, its nice to know, i am not the only one who tried that.

@Santosh:
The link i gave points to "jdk-6u18-docs.zip"
