    [jwsc] java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: com/sun/javadoc/Doclet

      com.bea.util.jam.internal.javadoc.JavadocClassloadingException: An error has occurred while invoking javadoc to inspect your source
      files. This may be due to the fact that $JAVA_HOME/lib/tools.jar does
      not seem to be in your system classloader. One common case in which
      this happens is when using the 'ant' tool, which uses a special
      context classloader to load classes from tools.jar.

      This situation elicits what is believed to a javadoc bug in the initial
      release of JDK 1.5. Javadoc attempts to use its own context classloader
      tools.jar but ignores one that may have already been set, which leads
      to some classes being loaded into two different classloaders. The
      telltale sign of this problem is a javadoc error message saying that
      'languageVersion() must return LanguageVersion - you might see this
      message in your process' output.

      This will hopefully be fixed in a later release of JDK 1.5; if a new
      version of 1.5 has become available, you might be able to solve this
      by simply upgrading to the latest JDK.

      Alternatively, you can work around it by simply including
      $JAVA_HOME/lib/tools.jar in the java -classpath
      parameter. If you are running ant, you will need to modify the standard
      ant script to include tools.jar in the -classpath.
