How do I hyperlink my Javadoc output to the JDK docs?

In my Javadoc output, @link tags, parameters, overridden methods etc. which refer to things defined in the JDK look like this:

public boolean equals(java.lang.Object obj)
equals in class java.lang.Object

It should look like this, with links accross to sun/oracle's docs:

public boolean equals(Object obj)
equals in class Object

I know there's a way to do that, I've seen it in other 3rd-party API documentation, but I can't figure out how.

P.S. I am invoking Javadoc from NetBeans, but I assume it's some kind of parameter that does it and NB does let you add parameters to the javadoc invokation via the project settings, but I just don't know what to add.
