Description Jan Lahoda 2013-04-26 14:18:42 UTC
We would like to use the javac's DocTrees APIs to gain structural access to javadoc, for use by various Java editing, search and transformation features. In order to do so, we need some enhancements in the java.source APIs as well. The overall changes are:
-adding CompilationInfo.getDocTrees similar to getTrees, but returning DocTrees.
-adding DocTreePathHandle - depends on DocTreePath which is not part of the javac APIs at this moment, see this webrev for a patch that introduces it:
-enhancing TreeMaker with ability to create DocTrees, and adding WorkingCopy.rewrite to actually rewrite the DocTrees
-adding a handful of utility methods into TreeUtilities

The full up-to-date patch is available here (please look for changes in java.source/.../api/... to the changes in the APIs):

Thanks for the review.
