(Build for JBuilder 7 with jdk 1.3.1 under Windows 2000/SP2)

The use of this software is governed by the terms in the file License.html, which is included in this distribution. You must read this and agree to these terms before using or distributing this freeware software.


The JavadocTool Personal OpenTool is an add-on module for the Borland JBuilder IDE for generating project specific javadoc documentation from inside the JBuilder IDE. Some of it's features are:

- Accessing the external javadoc utility for projects from inside the JBuilder IDE.
- Easy setup and controlling of many javadoc options through a JBuilder based tool.
- Project specific javadoc settings are remembered during multiple invocations.
- Capturing of javadoc information messages in an output view.
- Included online help.


To install the JavadocTool Personal , copy the JAR file included in the distribution into the ..\lib\ext directory under your JBuilder installation directory. The jdoctool.jar file is the main JavadocTool Personal file, which must be installed.

In the following table, refers to the root directory of the JBuilder installation.

File to copy Target directory
jdoctool.jar /lib/ext

After copying the jar file to it's location, you must restart JBuilder and press the Tools|JavadocTool... button to start the tool. Now the JavadocTool Personal panel should appear.


To uninstall the JavadocTool Personal just delete the JAR file from the ..\lib\ext directory under your JBuilder installation directory. Then restart JBuilder.


JavadocTool Personal adds a menu entry under JBuilder's Tools menu. The tool can only be started from the main JBuilder Tools menu. To access the JavadocTool Personal select the JBuilder main menu Tools entry, then on the Tools pulldown menu, select the Javadoc Tool... menu entry.

The JavadocTool Personal documentation is available from the tool's panel by pressing the Help button. To read the documentation without running JBuilder, you may extract the documentation from the file jdoctool.jar, which is included in this distribution.

If you choose to extract the documentation (this is not necessary), you will probably want to create a separate directory for these files. Assuming that you have the distribution files unpacked into the current directory, you could use the following commands:

jar xf jdoctool.jar help
cd help

When you have done this, open the file jdoctool.html using a web browser.


The JavadocTool Personal OpenTool has been tested with a version of JBuilder 7.0 and the JDK 1.3.1 running under Windows 2000 with SP2. This version will not work with JBuilder 3.5 or earlier versions.

In order to work, user projects must have an own "package structure". If for some reason a project and thus it's project file don't contain any user specified package, the JavadocTool Personal OpenTool might not work and do nothing. Look into the JavadocTool Personal 's online help for further explanations!
