Description helbig 2005-09-26 18:46:54 UTC
In a J2EE project I filed an overview.html file in src/java and changed in the
project's properties "Additional Javadoc Options" to "-overview overview.html".
But this is totally ignored by the javadoc-build target in build-impl.xml, since
there the additionalparam property isn't used.
Copying the target to my build.xml and adding this parameter didn't help either,
the javadoc tool couldn't find the file. A workaround seems to be to add the
Overview-Parameter as an Element to the javadoc task in build.xml. There I had
to specify Overview="src/java/overview.html" and everything worked fine.
