My JavaDoc tool has gone missing in Eclipse

Has anyone had this before, where their 'generate javaDoc' option has disappeared from their 'Project' menu in Eclipse?

The options are still there under preferances, but I have no actual option to generate the JavaDocs. It was there a week ago, just decided to run it again (as the code has chaged a fair bit and wanted to update my docs) and noticed it's just disappeared.

Any help greatly appreaciated

Did you switch to a different perspective in Eclipse? Make sure you are in the Java perspective: select Window / Open Perspective / Java.

I upgraded to Eclipse 3.3.2 JEE today. I do find the Generate Javadoc option under Project even when changing Windows-->preferences
