Subject Re: [doc] A better javadoc?
Date Tue, 12 Feb 2008 14:29:13 GMT
(Having a conversation with myself here :-)

Take a look at

for the first attempt at generating our documentation for JDocs.
I uploaded the current HEAD, together with the corresponding source 
code.  I called it M5 in anticipation but will refresh it and 'launch' 
the doc site officially after we declare the milestone.

Have a click around to see what you think.  Comments on the site 
usability/behavior can be sent to the "jdocs-feedback" mail box at 
dzone.com.  Comments on the quality of the javadoc comments can be 
posted here!

(Just beware that Sun source is also on the site, so check you are 
looking at the right version.)
