Default Dynamic Table of Contents of all system Javadoc

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA256

Hi

I was asked if we might be interested in having a dynamic ToC of all
system installed javadocs. The idea was posted as a bug against Fedora
[1]. Of course we have doc-base, but it appears to be Debian specific?

What do you think of this idea?

Default Dynamic Table of Contents of all system Javadoc

Wouldn't it be better to have something that is neither Java-specific
nor Debian-specific?

Default Dynamic Table of Contents of all system Javadoc

This proposal is for Eclipse, so the documentation in question is
Java-specific, but it could also include Groovy doc, and any other
languages providing structured HTML documentation.

It probaly will be implemented as an Eclipse plugin.
I think that is a great idea, as it would provide a good use-case for
those documentation packages which are quite under-used.
In the same way, we could provide automatically Eclipse libraries for
system-installed jars.

I too think it is a good idea, and that would probably be a good
occasion to enforce the policy on javadoc. I'm currently improving
lintian with a little more knowledge of java (see #620829). I haven't
started to work on javadoc, but it's somewhere on my TODO-list.

That raises a question I have in mind, and for which the policy is
currently unclear. Several of the packages I maintain are both programs
and libraries (and used as such). One of the examples that come to my
mind is statcvs, which is used by statsvn. For now, the package is
simply called statcvs, and it contains the javadoc (which is bad).
However, if we consider it a library, I should split that into three
packages:

statcvs, that would still contain the wrapper and the manual page.

libstatcvs-java, containing the jar

libstatcvs-java-doc, containing the javadoc.

Is that correct ? Should this be enforced ? (it is simple enough: if
javadoc is built for a program, then most probably it is used as a
library too).

Cheers,

Vincent
