I just had exactly the same problem. The cause was not having javadoc.exe in my path. Thanks very much for taking the time to post the solution.

OK so maybe I was a bit harsh in my orginal post, but hey now I can have two posts and double my chances of winning another copy of the OReilly EJB book ! But seriously, the algorithm I use when buying a book is to take the following steps,
1) learn the fundamentals from free docs, in this case use the J2EE Guide that comes with the Sun reference implemnattion.
2) Make notes on the bits you didn't understand or the things that you thought were missing.
3) In a book store briefly try and research two of the topics noted in 2) above.
4) Buy the book you feel best answers your two sample topics.
I hope this helps.

to get an idea of how poorly put together this book is.
A much better source of starter documentation is the *free* guide that comes with Sun's reference j2ee implementation.
