Write links to javadoc classes

Syntax Rules

  • Write the command %JAVADOC{source:fullclassname}% anywhere in your topics. It will be replaced by a link to the javadoc page.
  • The source refers to a preference variable setting the URL to the javadoc root
  • You can omit the source and write %JAVADOC{fullclassname}%, in this case a default source is used (see settings below)


You type... You should see... If installed...
%JAVADOC{L4J:org.apache.log4j.Logger}% Logger %JAVADOC{L4J:org.apache.log4j.Logger}%
%JAVADOC{java.lang.String}% String %JAVADOC{java.lang.String}%
%JAVADOC{IO:BufferedOutputStream}% BufferedOutputStream %JAVADOC{IO:BufferedOutputStream}%

In the last example, the source contain the package, so you need only to write the class name.
