07.03.2007: JDocs 2.0 Beta Now Online!

For more than a year we have been quietly working on a major update to JDocs, the community documentation system for Java. We learned a great deal from our first foray into this territory, and the radically enhanced JDocs 2.0 system has improvements that address most of the major problems with the original system.

Some of the cool new features include:

  • Support for Java SE Documentation
  • A powerful Ajax-driven interface
  • Support for the latest Java language enhancements
  • Wiki-based, versioned annotations at every level
  • Easy access to full API source code, when available
  • Plugins for popular IDEs (Eclipse today, NetBeans and IntelliJ coming)
  • Support for multiple versions of any API
  • Convenient, ant-based API updates by package owners
  • Support for personal API "favorites"
  • Quick switching between classic "javadoc" and JDocs styling
New: Eclipse plugin released.

You can now download an Eclipse plugin to view javadocs for your favorite API available through JDocs right in your Eclipse IDE. Download the plugin here.
