Can somebody please tell me if the JDeveloper installation has javadocs for the standard SE libraries? If not where can i download them?

And how do i add them so i can actually see what for example String.charAt() really does?

My JDeveloper Version is 12.2.1.4.0.

    You can download the jdk doc from https://www.oracle.com/java/technologies/javase-jdk8-doc-downloads.html

    Put the zip file somewhere local on your machine. Then open JDeveloper and select the menu tools->'manage libraries'. There you select the 'Java SE definition' tab and select the JDK version you are using

    click on the 'Doc Path' and select 'Add Entry' button. In the file dialog that opens, you go to the directory where you put the zip file and open it and select the 'docs/api' folder. Then save everything and restart JDev.

    Then you'll get the javadoc you are missing.

    Unfortunately it did not work. I did exactly what you described.

    But it seems that it has no effect.

    Do you know what i may be missing?

    Kind Regards

    Well, you are looking at the code for the method and not the documentation. Select the 'Documentation' tab below the 'Element has no details' and you see the javadoc.


    If you want to see the code you can download the jdk source and add the zip to the source path (in the manage libraries) where you added the path to the docs.
