I am facing coua problem with Javadoc usage.
In one of my classes I have @see tag as follows.

* @see java.beans.Introspector

When i try running ant script for javadoc am getting following warning,

[javadoc] javadoc: warning - Tag @see: Class or Package not found: java.beans.Introspector

My ant script for javadoc task containing following element.
<link href="" offline="true"<br /> packagelistLoc="${j2seDoc}"/>
where $j2sedoc is pointing to doc directory containing package-list file.

If everything is fine, I am expecting that my class not found problem for @see tag is resolved, But that's not happening.

Please suggest me where I am doing wrong.

Thanks ina advance,

I figured out solution..

Solution is
while importing instead of importing like import java.beans.* import like java.beans.Introspector...

This will help javadoc to find Introspector ....

This worked for me though it's crazy way of doing things
