Intellij IDEA source appears to have the javadoc comments stripped out

Hi, I have been lookin at IntelliJ IDEA plugin development and frequently I´m jumping into intellij idea comunity edition to provide myself guidance about how to continue, and I have seen that almost every class and method haven't javadoc comments, for example com.intellij.psi.PsiReferenceProvider. Does IntelliJ IDEA team provide a javadoc, is it private or there isn't something like that anywhere. Thanks

Hello Jaime,

If we had javadocs, there would be no reason to make them private. If you
don't see them in the source code, they don't exist anywhere.

The source code is the documentation. That said - there is quite a bit of JavaDoc surrounding PsiReference and particularly CompletionContributor.

I think that getting a list of a few good example plugins is ultimately more useful. That's just my opinion though.

PsiReference is not easy to "get right" at first (I'm still not sure my own code does everything properly).

Are you sure you have attached your sources to the PluginSDK you created? If you see true 0 javadoc then your environment is not set up properly.
