Netbeans-Friendly Javadocs

2014-02-27 15:36

Is there a .jar or URL that I can use to get javadocs that work within Netbeans code prediction popup boxes?

I tried attaching the URL: http://www.objectdb.com/api/java/jpa/EntityManager to the EntityManager object in Netbeans but it gives me the error:

Javadoc not found. Either Javadoc documentation for this item does not exist or you have not added specified Javadoc in the Java Platform Manager or the Library Manager.

You can use the api-javadoc.zip file that is included in the ObjectDB distribution (in the doc directory).

It works when adding it through Tools > Java Platforms > JDK ... > Javadoc > Add ZIP/Folder...

although there may be a better place to add this documentation to NetBeans.

I had an issue where the javadocs were still not working after repeating the above process. I fixed it by exiting Netbeans and going back in again.

It would probably be a lot easier if I could just import a secondary .jar file to go along with objectdb.jar - similar to how most other 3rd party plug-ins work...

Please read carefully the posting instructions - before posting to the ObjectDB website.

  • You may have to disable pop up blocking in order to use the toolbar (e.g. in Chrome).
  • Use ctrl + right click to open the browser context menu in the editing area (e.g. for using a browser spell checker).
  • To insert formatted lines (e.g. Java code, stack trace) - select a style in the toolbar and then insert the text in the new created block.
  • Avoid overflow of published source code examples by breaking long lines.
  • You may mark in paragraph code words (e.g. class names) with the code style (can be applied by ctrl + D).
  • Long stack traces (> 50 lines) and complex source examples (> 100 lines) should be posted as attachments.
