Short story.... (sorry??).....
Ok, one of my buddies I work with and I have converted over to using Java, well we had a project that had to be done so instead of having a full ramp up time on Java we jumped into and started writing. (Trust me, looking back at the code, we can tell which classes were written first) Anyways, we now having a working solution, and its great. But when others in our group look at (well including us) we are not sure what we did in certain areas. Then we stumbled onto Javadoc (This is where the crowd whoops and hollors yeah!!!) But it has raised some questions as well:
As previously stated we have already written the project, and it works well, so we are headed back to put javadoc comments into it. When we are done with that, is there a way to point javadoc in the right direction and it will look through the different packages and pull out the different classes and make one large javadoc?
Currently I have a batch file that has all the actual packages with classes on the command line as one entry, a long entry at that.

What I would rather do is:

and it finds all the packages.
Is this possible?
