Subject RE: How to include @inheritDoc from a dependent jar
Date Tue, 14 Jan 2014 13:18:07 GMT

New try :-)

I have the following:

Interface in dependency jar javadoc:

     * Deletes the object found at the specified location.
     * @param Object any type of object
     * @throws InvalidObjectException lots of text
     * @throws NoSuchObjectException lots of text
public void delete (Object object)throws throws InvalidObjectException, NoSuchObjectException;

Implementing class:

     * {@inheritDoc}
    public void delete(Object object) throws InvalidObjectException, NoSuchObjectException
	//implementation of delete

Is this correct or?   Since this will not produce any javadoc for implementation of delete
( last code).
