Javadoc Copying on Override Method functionality

I am not sure, please correct me if I am wrong, but it seems that this only works if the source is provided. On many applications the source is simply not available. When doing the intellisense popups the javadocs are shown for JARs that have a JavaDoc API URL/location specified but who do not have any source specified.

If we can get the JavaDocs for this can we not take the JavaDocs from these supplied URI/locations and use them when copying the JavaDoc for function override stuff?

If this is supposed to work right now I have never been able to get it to work correctly. If my message isn't clear please let me know.

I'm affraid this is not feasible to implement since we'll be required to
reverse-engineer javadoc from the generated HTML.

Not necessarily; the JavaDoc html is downloaded either from the URL or from the file system and displayed when intellisense shows the popup for a method or class.

Converting this JavaDoc HTML to a JavaDoc comment should be relatively easy once you have the HTML, which you already do.

Did you not understand my original question?
