Hello guys!
I'm working with Netbeans 8.2. Just learning to code in Java.
I've generated documentation for a little project. I can see info related to the classes that I'm using in that project, inside a specific Windows in the IDE. No matters, where they belong. Nice.


But, when I'm consulting the generated documentation with a browser, the links to methods or classes of the Java API Specification are not available. Why?

Welcome to the Ranch.

JavaDocs generates documentation you have written as a javadoc comments in the source code files. i.e.:


So this gets generated into the web documentation.

Could you please clarify what exactly you mean by API specification?

There should be a section with settings for the project where you can specify javadoc options - that's where you need to add the link to the root of the Java class libraries javadocs. Those could be somewhere local to you, or to Oracle's server.
 
Squanch that. And squanch this tiny ad:
