Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-4102) clean up javadoc errors under jdk8 linter
Date Fri, 08 Jan 2016 22:33:39 GMT


Christopher Tubbs commented on ACCUMULO-4102:

So, I started looking into this and ran into a few problems. First, the default doclint setting
for the plugin appears to be {{all}}, which includes {{accessibility}}, {{html}}, {{missing}},
{{reference}}, and {{syntax}} (see {{javadoc -X}} with JDK8).

I'd have to look more closely at the errors from the other checks, but so far, I'm pretty
sure we don't want {{missing}} at all. We don't care if standard tags are missing (they would
be helpful... but not that important), otherwise we'd have enabled this with checkstyle awhile
ago. So, we can just turn that one off. Unfortunately, I ran into MJAVADOC-368.

Even if we fix all the issues, then we'd still run into MPLUGIN-244. This was fixed in the
3.3 versions of the plugins, but (as I understand it) Maven 3.3 won't work with JDK1.6, so
we'd be setting up users for failure if we switch to that, because then the plugin we create
would only work on JDK 1.7 or later (with Maven 3.3 or later). An alternative solution is
to exclude these generated HelpMojo classes from the javadoc. Maybe that's fine... but it
might be better to just turn off all checks with ACCUMULO-4101 ({{-Xdoclint:none}}) or just
limit ourselves to a single doclint group ({{-Xdoclint:syntax}}?) to check when generating
with JDK8.

> ACCUMULO-4101 disabled the jdk8 javadoc linter so we could build with java 8 in the short
> This ticket tracks removing the java 8 specific profile and correcting all of the javadoc
errors needed to run javadoc.
> To ease implementation, I'd recommend whoever handles this make sub-tasks per module.
