stupid javadoc question

i know we have to write javadoc comments for all public classes and methods. So i did this. I also write javadoc comments for all other classes and methods.

When i create the javadoc files i see only public classes, i was confused
Why can't i see the other classes, for example default classes. I only have a few public classes, only the classes which must be accessable from outside of the package are defined public, the others are defined default/package-wise. For example, the data class is defined default with public methods. I can't even see this class

Please give me some help or advice.

Javadoc lists only public and protected classes and methods by default. You may change that behaviour by setting -public -protected -package -private when calling javadoc. In your case -package might be appropiate.

HTH, chris
