The jde-docindex package provides a quick and convenient interface to javadoc directly within Emacs.
You can see description and get sources from http://www.peerfear.org/jde-docindex/
ArjenWiersma: Looks like this site is gone… I am getting (3-nov-2005) a links only site now…
I did a search on the Internet. It looks like jde-docindex has been on freshmeat.net. I asked on freshmeat.net about it and Daniel Pearson kindly replied that they do not know anything about it now.
I have also asked on the gnu-emacs-help list, but there are no replies yet. – LennartBorgman
Perhaps someone has this package locally and can put it up here or elsewhere so that we might still be able to find it.. I was actually looking for this functionality ☹ – Arjen Wiersma
[new] I don’t think it is part of JDEE. I have version 0.93. Here is what the comment section says:
This is a package for the jde which supports building javadoc, exporting it to .info files and installing the relevant content into the Emacs info system. The nice thing is that this provides a *quick* and nice interface to javadoc without having to resort to using Mozilla and also using completion.
Last time I tried it didn’t work. The maintainer is listed in the package, I will drop him a note. – NascifAbousalhNeto
One more thing: JDEE knows how to find a HTML JavaDoc page from a class name (at point or not), either locally or from a web site. I use w3m to read JavaDoc inside Emacs and it works quite well. – NascifAbousalhNeto
I’ve been unable to upload the version 0.9.3 of jde-docindex directly. Meanwhile, I’ve made it available through a temporary url .
