Could anyone please let me know how to create the javadocs.
what is the command?
If i use the command javadoc -d <file to store> package name in the command prompt i get a warning saying no source files for package but creates some package.html, index.html,tree.html but when i open that page i am not able to see anything. How to create the javadoc for my package?

just do:
javadoc dirOfSourceFiles\*.java
where dirOfSourceFiles is (not surprisingly) the directory where your .java files are.
all docs will appear in the current directory
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
