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.
