Hi. I'm trying to add the MIPD API documentation to Netbeans but I'm not having much luck. I have downloaded the zip file to my desktop and from Netbeans - Tools - Java Platforms - Javadoc tab
but I'm not sure what to do at this point. There are three platforms listed - CDC, J2ME and J2SE. I have tried to add the unpacked Javadoc folder to either CDC or J2ME but I still get the message 'Javadoc not found' when searching for the method setRequestMethod(). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I work on Eclipse. Hence, I cannot comment on this problem. Do one thing- Google this problem. Someone else might have faced the same issue earlier. For eg. search for error adding javadocs in netbeans or something like that. That could produce a more fruitful answer in lesser time. Otherwise you would have to wait until someone who is a member of this forum and has faced the same or a similar issue sees your thread and knows the solution.

I not sure there is a solution, I think it's a bug in this version of Netbeans
https://netbeans.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=192505

The classes I was interested in were also in the CIDP 2.0 pack and the path to the Javadocs was listed but still were not picked up.
I'm going to try Netbeans 7.2 with the Mobility plugin.

Work with Eclipse Al. It does not have such bugs at least. Even if you get stuck , I (or someone else) may be able to help you as Eclipse is the most widely used IDE.

How do you know?

Anyway, I think this thread is a candidate for moving to the IDEs forum.

I'm not a regular user of Netbeans, either, but I changed your message title to alert the NetBeans experts who hang around here.

Well, for Java it surely is.

But how do you know? Are you simply guessing?

5 years of work experience and I haven't seen a single guy in my project or in any team which works on java and uses other any other IDE than Eclipse. Anyways, what's your point? That it is not?
