javadoc Method Detail is not in alphabetical order

For the JavaDoc that I have generated, the Method Summary shows the methods in alphabetical order, but the Method Detail does not. I suppose I could rearrange all the methods in my application, but this seems like a lot of work. I was looking at the official javadoc for sun, and the Method Detail is not in order for that either. Still, I was wondering if there was a magic javadoc command to use to alphabetize the Method Detail as well as the Method Summary.

Hi Lara,

I know of no such parameter for Javadoc, and, as you have noted, Sun don't seem to care about it.

I personally would not bother to rearrange methods in the class alphabetically.

Best regards, Andrew
