    Javadoc: including external HTML file that's rendered

    605972cf-bada-492c-b1f2-ae4f313b7486

      I have some long tables that I'd like to link to in the Javadoc, but I don't want them cluttering the main documentation. They are reference only.

       

      I've formatted the tables in an external HTML file. I created a doc-files directory and placed the HTML file there. If I just link to it with an HTML a tag, I just see the HTML code. How can I get the Javadoc compiler to render it?

       

      I know how to include images. I also created an overview.html file and got that to work. But I failed to figure out how to do this. The long tables would be inappropriate in the overview or package descriptions.

       

      I did look at this, which made me think I could do it, but I was unable to figure it out:

      https://docs.oracle.com/javase/1.5.0/docs/tooldocs/windows/javadoc.html#unprocessed

       

      I'm creating Javadoc in Eclipse and use ant to compile it. I'm using SE 1.7.

       

      Thanks for any help you can provide.
