I think it might be a good idea if you can set the javadoc overview file path relative more easily.

Now you can set it in relative like this: javadoc.additionalparam=\ -overview ${basedir}/${src.dir}/overview.html 

but on the "Project Properties" panel -> Build -> Documenting -> Additional Javadoc Options: it is converted to absolute path so you have chance to lose the original format (if you change any letter) :( 

Thanks: Bela
