---------------------------------------

Yeah this would be a great feature, much needed for large projects.

> Provide new javadoc:aggregate goal to perform javadoc operation on a project and its
subprojects, idea being that aggregate pulls together the classpath and sourcepath for all
the project and subprojects and then churns out normal javadoc.
> i.e. projects:-
> /root/
> /root/a/src/...
> /root/a/b/src/...
> /root/a/b/c/src/...
> /root/a/d/src/...
> /root/a/e/src/...
> @ /root/a-> m2 javadoc:aggregate
> generates javadoc in /root/a/target/javadoc for src contained within projects a, b, c,
d, and e.
> Note, javadoc does not currently provide support for this kind of aggregation and so
people have traditionally written their own specialised tasks/scripts (in ant land say) to
handle it. sun do refer to the idea of an incremental build in their FAQ which they say they
are considering for the future (fat chance) (http://java.sun.com/j2se/javadoc/faq/#incrementalbuild)
but that is about generating aggregate docs from already existing javadocs.
