    Javadoc taglets question.

    843810
      Compared to, say, the javadoc webpages
      which are the code dictionary for the SE JDK,

      There isn't earnly as many active links
      to methods,fields, and custructors elsewhere
      in the javadoc.

      There doesn't seem to be a way to hyperlink
      the autoinformation generated, such
      as the default inherited fields
      in the case of a supclass.

      Is there a way, when using the javadoc tool,
      to code for all this?

          elsewhere in the javadoc.
          such as where exactly?

          I don't understand. Javadoc generates precisely that information.

          What exactly are you trying to do?

            If for example, you examine some
            javadoc we can both see,
            such as this internet web page,
            the String class:

            [http://life.csu.edu.au/java-doc/api/java/lang/String.html|http://life.csu.edu.au/java-doc/api/java/lang/String.html]

            There is a link for java.lang.object.

            In the method summary area, certain return types also
            exist as links to the appropriate class pages.

            It is also usually the case that past this,
            there is a list of inherited fields and methods.
            These are also links, to their appropriate pages.

            I have gone through the javadoc tutorial,
            and don't see anything that I can put,
            in terms of javadoc .java source code taglets,
            to produce these results in
            "javadoc -private MyCode.java".

            Does anyone have any ideas on this?

              I don't understand why you need it. Javadoc produces that automatically. Taglets are for adding tags.

              Do you want me to move this thread to the Javadoc forum?

                Yes, I would like this thread moved to the javadoc area.

                As per my discussion:
                I am looking for a way to activate all the links
                in my javadoc pages, without resorting
                to manually changing the html.

                  That's what the -link and -linkoffline options are for. Example: -link "http://java.sun.com/javase/6/docs/api".

                      Yes indeed,

                      this is the answer I have been after!
