Did you try to type "javadoc" at the command line ?

Javadoc can do that. Post a bit more detail about what the actual problem is, what javadoc command you used, and how your directory layout looks like.

I have to recursively create javadocs fro my files
i used the command javadoc -sourcepath A -subpackages B

where A is the path to my parent directory having my files and B are the subpackages for which i want to create javadocs.

It is giving me warning "No source files found for B".

Read the documentation for the javadoc tool.
