I am using Eclipse. I would like to speicify the location of javadocs on my system, I downloaded it from Sun.

1. I know I can point to the src.zip from Eclipse. (I did this and it works)
2. Is there a way to unzip src.zip to a doc directory and point Eclipse to that location too? Where do I unzip my src.zip file?
3. I am messing with Tomcat and Struts. How can I bring in there javadocs info in addition to Java 5.0?

I am sorry if this seems simple, I tried searching sun.com but that gets wirey so fast I could lose a day looking.

Thank you,
Higgledy

If I remember correctly, you do something like this:

- extract suns javadocs into your JDK/docs directory
eg. mine is:
C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.5.0_02\docs

Configure Eclipse to use the JRE within the JDK directory, then it should automagically pickup the javadocs associated with that JRE.
