Ok, my first thoughts.

The javadocs are in fact a rendering of .java files.
So, if I tell the locationmap to mount my

   src/java dir



,I could ask javadocs for




If the javadocs view is the "default" one, I could also see it as:


Javadocs also have extra cross-reference info, and that should be 
pregenerated by the plugin buildfile and used as metadata by the plugin. 
or at the first call of the java file. This is how the Cocoon plugin for 
this works.

Let's instead imagine, for the sake of completeness, that the plugin has 
to pregenerate all the files before the start of the Forrest run.

In this case, I would imagine that this plugin needs to know the place 
where the java code is, and the user can indicate in the locationmap 
that it wants to get the javadocs from the javadoc plugin docs 
generation dir.

Fire at will :-)
