Specifying a javadoc url does not work with some urls

Heyhey community,

really love the feature that you can specify a documentation url which points to a javadoc somewhere. So it always was working perfect since now. I tried to add this documentation url: http://static.netty.io/3.6/api/ but no success. I already tried it with some other javadocs and it worked.

It shows me for example:

Following external urls were checked:    
http://static.netty.io/3.6/api/org/jboss/netty/channel/Channels.html#pipeline()    
http://static.netty.io/3.6/api/org/jboss/netty/channel/Channels.html#pipeline()
The documentation for this element is not found. Please add all the needed paths to API docs in Project Settings.




But if you enter the urls in your webbrowser it works perfect. Is this a known problem or the javadocs fault?

Hi Max,

That is an IJ bug which has been inadvertently fixed during IDEA-91798 processing (will be availble starting from 12.1.x branch).

Hello,

I'm using IntelliJ 12.1.2 version but I still get the same problem:
Following external urls were checked:    
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E24290_01/coh.371/e22843/com/tangosol/util/ConcurrentMap.html#unlock(java.lang.Object)    
http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E24290_01/coh.371/e22843/com/tangosol/util/ConcurrentMap.html#unlock(java.lang.Object)
The documentation for this element is not found. Please add all the needed paths to API docs in Project Settings.

You sure it is been fixed?

Thanks,
Sandeep

Hi Sandeep,

Please create dedicated ticket at the IJ tracker with a sample project attached as there might be multiple reasons over than that bug on why do you experience the problem (e.g. incorrect firewall/proxy/ide setup).

Sorry, my bad.
It is the coherence URL and not intelliJ problem.
I see that it gives this error only when I try to access javadoc for a method for any class under http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E24290_01/coh.371/e22843/

Note it does show the javadoc for the classes but not the methods.
Which means that the coherence URLs do not support page anchor which is vindicated by this URL "http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E24290_01/coh.371/e22843/com/tangosol/util/ConcurrentMap.html#unlock(java.lang.Object)" - which takes you to the top of the page and not to the 'unlock' method

Thanks for your promt response though

Cheers,
Sandeep
