Javadoc accepts an @{file} argument for a file which contains a list  
of the files to be javadoc'd. Ant, unfortunately, doesn't include a  
facility for generating such a list of files.

Good news, though. It appears that recent versions of Ant will now  
generate the file list for you from <fileset> elements. It would be  
interesting if you can get the "derbydocs" javadoc build going using  
multiple nested filesets, excluding the classes listed in tools/ 
javadoc/derbydocs_excludes.ant, and avoid the need to copy the entire  
source tree to a new directory before generating the javadoc. And if  
you get that working, then it should be simple to get the  
publishedapi target to work in a similar fashion.

Let me know if you're interested in working on that, otherwise I'll  
take a look.
