Stumbled upon javaref.com a really interesting use of AJAX to try to improve upon Javadoc. Thanks to Karthik Abram for pointing this out to me.
Features I’d like to see:
1. …a way for component authors to publish and update versions of Javadoc, by supplying SVN URLs.
2. …a mechanism for viewing a specific version of a component’s Javadoc.
3. …a Maven 2 plug-in that would let someone create Javadoc in the same style with lnks to the javaref.com site.
I think that like the centralized Maven repository, we need more efforts to create hosted reference content for Java. A site like Javaref.com is a good start towards an indispensible everyday tool. Keep it coming.
