I'm a bit confused as to what I should do here and would really like to get a response from the IntelliJ team. Is this a known issue? Is anyone inside IntelliJ having this problem?
The problem is that I have a project using a Java SVG library (Apache Batik). No matter how hard I try I cannot get it to discover the source code for the batik classes so QuickJavadoc doesn't work.
However, there are no exceptions so I really don't know what to put in a bug report :o/.
So I'm posting this here... hopefully someone from IntelliJ can respond and give an idea about what to do about this.
I've created a project that has this behavior. Unfortunately it's ~4Mb so I can't attach it to the post but I've set it up on a seperate web server:
Get the zip file, unzip it, open the project. There's only one java file in the project, open it up and search for "JSVGCanvas" which is a class from the Batik library. Position the cursor on it and press CtrlQ... no (useful) JavaDoc, you can also try pressing CtrlSpace inside the constructor parenthases and you'll see that there are no parameter names... just the types.
If you're sceptical you can look at project properties and see that the source jar is set as the source for the Batik library and if you're still sceptical you can open up the source jar file and take a look at the source code for JSVGCanvas class to make sure that it's there and that it's JavaDoc'ed.
