Try navigating with the Finder. In my installation I find the docs in the following directory: Mac OS X/Library/Java/Home/docs/. When I double click on index.html it takes me to the path I listed above. They may be in a different location on your machine.

One way to locate them would be to search for some Java specific doc such as JMenuItem.html and work backwards two layers. That file will sit inside of <...>/docs/javax/swing. You can then navigate up to the docs directory and look for index.html.

    Hi Daniel.

    I'm afraid I do not have a docs directory in the path you listed. I only see:

    JSSE Copyright.rtf
    JSSE License.rtf

    Nor can I locate the specific doc JMenuItem.html as you suggested. It looks like I don't have documentation on this system.

    Do I have an incomplete installation of Java? I updated to Mac OS X 10.1 from 10.0.4, and I also installed the new Developer tools on top of a previous installation of older versions.

    Did I do something wrong?

    Thanks for any help you can give me. If you'd rather take this off the feedback section, you can e-mail me directly at

      I'm having the same problem. very frustrating. I have Java 1.4.2 and can't find the doc. I tried the Address, and managed to get down to "Resources". But, alas, English.1proj" was not there.

      Also, could not find "JMenuItem.html" -- in the same boat as Steve - but sinking.

      I'm a newbie to Java, and development on the Mac.

      Thanks for any help... Jim
