    I’m trying to generate javadocs for the first time. Any “wonderful” MyEclipse step-by-step tutorials for generating javadocs?

    Sorry, Javadoc generation is part of the Eclipse JDT project, not MyEclipse.

    have you tried the Eclipse help? Its quite good…

    Eclipse 3.0.0
    MyEclipse 3.8.2

    OK, then… According to ‘Eclipse Help’ – Javadoc search, I see the following :
    Specifying the location of the Javadoc command
    The JDT uses the Javadoc command (typically available in JRE distributions) to generate Javadoc documentation from source files.

    To set the location of the Javadoc command:

    Use the Window > Preferences > Java > Javadoc preferences page to enter the absolute (e.g. C:\Java\14\jdk1.4\bin\javadoc.exe) path to the Javadoc command.
    Yet, when I look at Java under Preferences I see no Javadoc sub-category… Does MyEclipse somehow override (remove) this Javadoc option from the Preferences dialog? The following is what I see when I navigate to this location:

    –>(+)Build Path
    –>(+)Code Style
    –>Installed JREs
    –>Task Tags
    –>Type Filters

    It is also not under the sub-topics marked with (+) above….

    1) (Menu) Project > Generate Javadoc
    2) (Project Properties) Javadoc Location

    Those are the settings I believe you need to worry about.

    From previous response:
    “have you tried the Eclipse help? Its quite good…”

    Not so good after all, is it?
