Subject Re: Java Source Cross-Reference

If you want the real story on Doxygen and its features and shortcomings, 
you might want to visit the forum.

I had no trouble installing it on Windows. I integrated it into Eclipse 
with the eclox plug-in to give me a platform independent interface.

I am sure that someone has resolved the cross platform issues with Ant. 
I suppose you have to guage how many platforms you need to actually 
support - there are getting to be fewer and fewer as time goes by.

I have never seen the code source hyperlinked together. Sounds like a 
useful feature if your classes are large and naming conventions not very 
easy to follow.

I am using it with ActionScript and it works pretty well but would 
benefit from a pre-processor to rearrange some of the Actionscript 

I like the flexibility of JavaDoc tagging.

Good luck with your search.
