Subject Javadoc links
Date Tue, 20 May 2003 15:51:44 GMT
Hi all,


I've got a project (several really) that pull from a pool of components.
I'm revamping the build process for the components such that they all
have a consistent feel. I've employed many of the techniques I've
learned in _Java Development with Ant_ including the concept of library
build documents. By breaking the common tasks out into separate files,
I'm able to make each component look and feel the same without
preventing the customizations that are often necessary for certain
builds. Now here's the rub...


For my javadoc library build document, I've included some helper targets
that automagically include the overview file if it is present, but more
importantly, sets certain options so that all of these components'
documentation will look and feel the same. Now some components have an
outside dependency that I would like the javadocs to link to, others
might have two. I'm trying to figure out if there is a way to "pass" a
variable number of links to this independent build document.


I was going to file an enhancement request for javadoc to accept a
direst reference for the links, but I wanted to make sure there wasn't
some other way to do this.


Any suggestions, or am I just way outside the bounds and abilities of
XML & Ant here?
