Add Javadoc for Spring 3.0.2 in NetBeans 6.9.1

Hi,

I'm currently doing a course in Spring and have installed netbeans 6.9.1 IDE which comes bundled with spring framework 3.0.2 and spring web mvc 3.0.2. While the installation of the IDE and the spring class libraries (framework & web mvc) was successful, looked up Tools > Libraries > Library Manager (as per netbeans help topics ), the javadoc for Spring is missing. Be it
the framework



or the web mvc


both instances show the same message. Again as given in help topics, I selected "Spring Framework 3.0.2 RELEASE" under Tools > Libraries > Library Manager > Class Libraries and on the right-pane of the Library Manager dialog box, I clicked on the "Javadoc" tab (for the jars listed in the Classpath tab) and then clicked on "Add Zip/Folder" to add javadoc from the directory concerned. I'm stalled at this step.......do not know where the javadoc folder is?

Could any of the forum expert(s) or members tell me in which folder (within netbeans 6.9.1) do I find the Spring javadoc OR do I have to download the javadoc and sources separately from the internet. I'm a beginner and would certainly find descriptions / definitions of the classes most useful.

Any help is much appreciated.

Thanks,
Sudhir

Do you have to use NetBeans? You could use Spring's Tool Suite STS, which is free at www.springsource.com

I don't know Netbeans, so I can't help you with the IDE issue you are having. I assume you would point to the jar file that has the Spring SourceCode or JavaDoc which can also be downloaded from a Maven2 Repo or from the SpringFramework.org website somewhere.

Good Luck

Yes, my course requires that I use NetBeans.

I think I've posted on the wrong forum and will therefore inform the moderator to move to the IDE's forum.

Thanks,

I don't have 6.9.1, I have 7.1, but here is what I do to add javadocs to libraries.

In the project within NetBeans on the Projects tab, expand the Libraries entry, right click on a JAR file, select Edit. An Edit Jar Reference dialog pops up what has a filed where you can enter the location of the Javadoc. You want to supply a JAR file that contains the Javadoc.
