JavaHelp

Author: SUN Microsystems

Latest version: 2.0_02
Added 2005-02-06

JavaHelp software is a platform-independent, extensible help system that enables you to incorporate online help in applets, components, applications, operating systems, and devices. Authors can also use the JavaHelp software to deliver online documentation for the Web and corporate intranet

Written entirely in the Java programming language, the JavaHelp system can run on any platform and browser that supports the Java Runtime Environment (JRE), making it ideal for use in a heterogeneous environment such as the Web and corporate intranet

The JavaHelp system is implemented using Java Foundation Classes (JFC) software components. The JavaHelp system can be displayed in its own window or embedded in an application. It can also be extended to add customized navigational controls.

With the JavaHelp system, help data and search functionality can reside on either the client side or server side. The JavaHelp software network design also enables help data and new functionality to be dynamically updated over the web.

Author: yWorks

Latest version: 2.1_05
Added 2005-02-23

yDoc is a Javadoc extension that adds UML diagrams and other features to the generation process of Java API documentation.
Features include:
- an XML-based mechanism to define new custom tags.
- the possibility to exclude specific classes, methods or fields from the generated documentation. This is done by marking items with an exlusion tag. Additionally, an interface is provided so that custom criteria can be used.
- automatic generation of UML class diagrams for each documented class. The diagrams can be embedded in the generated HTML pages as scalable vector graphics (SVG), as GIF, or as JPG files.

Doxygen

 Home Page Home Page

Categories: Documentation - Code commenting

Author: Dimitri van Heesch

Latest version: 1.4.0
Added 2005-01-02

Documentation system for C++, C, Java, Objective-C, IDL (Corba and Microsoft flavors) and to some extent PHP, C# and D.
Doxygen can help you in three ways:
1. It can generate an on-line documentation browser (in HTML) and/or an off-line reference manual (in $\mbox{\LaTeX}$) from a set of documented source files. There is also support for generating output in RTF (MS-Word), PostScript, hyperlinked PDF, compressed HTML, and Unix man pages. The documentation is extracted directly from the sources, which makes it easier to keep the documentation consistent with the source code.
2. You can configure Doxygen to extract the code structure from undocumented source files. This is useful to quickly find your way in large source distributions. You can also visualize the relations between the various elements by means of include dependency graphs, inheritance diagrams, and collaboration diagrams, which are all generated automatically.
3. You can even "abuse" doxygen for creating normal documentation (as I did for this manual).

Java Source Code Browser

Categories: Documentation - Code commenting

Author: Semantic Designs

Java Source Code Browser.
This tool reads a designated set of Java source files and produces a JavaDoc equivalent extended with fully browsable source code containing hyperlinked cross-references within and across that set of files. Every identifier in the source code (public or local) acts as a link to its corresponding source definition, all uses of that identifier anywhere in the source files, and the corresponding JavaDoc information. This provides a convenient method for programmers to view the entire source of large application systems.

Features include:
- JavaDoc tag compatible
- Java 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 and 1.4 compatible
- Produces JavaDoc equivalent web pages
- Extracts full cross-reference and type information from both source and class files
- Can handle large systems of source code
- Optional specification of files via graphical project file chooser
