I am writing a custom doclet. When i run javadoc I specify the custom docket using
javadoc -doclet <customdocletname>
Is there any way to debug the custom doclet?
When javadoc is run under some debugging mode either using JDB or some means I should be able to put break points in the custom doclet class.
Thanks
Ven B

I found the answer
To debug custom doclet in your editor use
String[] args = new String[] {"-doclet","fullyQualified Custom Doclet Classname","java file names as input"};
com.sun.tools.javadoc.Main.main(args);
I found this on sun javadoc forum:
