While running javadoc I'm trying to link to another project's javadoc files. I have a URL with to a directory containing the package-list file; however the website is password protected (BASIC authentication). Is there a way to specify a username/password to javadoc so it can access the files?

You could try putting it in the URL:

http://username:password@hostname/

Thanks. Didn't seem to work. Found I could get the effect I wanted using the "offline links" option.
