In Netbeans IDE 6, the javadoc generator was integrated, if i right-click on any API, the option to see the javadoc came out.

But now I am using Eclipse Europa but can't find the javadoc here.

How can I integrate javadoc in Eclipse?

Also, is there any offline javadoc generator that I can download from anywhere?

Please help me on this

"Offline" Javadoc generator? Like the "javadoc" program?

Referenced libraries can have Javadocs attached inside the project properties: Java Build Path -> Libraries -> (open library, see option for Javadoc location).

I believe that the OP is asking for the equivalent to NetBean's "show javadoc" command, where in the IDE, you can just right-click on a library, and it will fire up your browser with the applicable section displayed. Its very nice.

Oh. Shift-F2 does that on a referenced library in the package explorer if the Javadoc location has been specified.

The JavaDoc generator is the "Projects/Generate JavaDoc" menu selection.

As David mentioned, you can do a key sequence to display a known javadoc. However, merely hovering the pointer over the item in question is sufficient to activate the pop-up display. Further instructions on how to use that feature appear within the display window.

Shift-F2 opens up the external Javadocs for the entire library (in the package explorer). Hover in a Java editor shows the docs for item, clicking on it shows the Javadoc for that item in the Javadoc tab/view.
