Reposting again.

Shouldn't javadoc automatically recurse through directories?  It doesn't for 
me.  I would like to run javadoc at the root of all my projects w/o telling 
it it each .java file.  We have a multi-project platform all residing within 
a master project and each having their own src subfolder and many .java 
source files:


The command below, in my original email, does not work for me.  But if I 
generate a for-loop at the DOS prompt from the root of all the projects, I 
get it to work but the result is is not correct.  All the examples out there 
are geared toward a single project.  How can I get javadoc to recurse 
automatically? I do not see a command line option.  Once I successfully run 
this at the command prompt or from a batch file, I will then convert it to

Almost wrong forum, I know...but...

I would like to test and run javadoc at a DOS prompt before writing ant code 
for it but the problem is that when I cd into my project and execute the 
following, I get an error1 and nothing happens.

c:\>cd Builds\project1
C:\Builds\project1>javadoc -sourcepath widgegts\src:3rdpary\scr *.java -d 

javadoc: error - File not found: "*.java"
1 error

How come javadoc is not recursing through my subfolders?
