Hi,

I searched many sites (including this one), e.g. http://forums.netbeans.org/ntopic7388.html,

-- still I cannot find a solution.
(That is, solutions are plentiful, seems to be a common problem for years for many, but none from what I saw works for me).


Here is a full description - hopefully somebody has solved it for Mac and will help me...

1) To reproduce, I select anything (say String) in NetBeans, ^-click and select "Show Javadoc": the result is

2) I have a Mac and Netbeans 6.7.1, installed java 1.6, it (seems to me) came without docs:

@ /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions> ls
1.3 1.4 1.5 1.6 A CurrentJDK
1.3.1 1.4.2 1.5.0 1.6.0 Current ls.before

@/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions> find . -name docs.\*
./1.4.2/Home/docs.jar
./1.5.0/Home/docs.jar


3) I added
/System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.5/Home/docs.jar
to "Platform Manager" / JDK 1.6 / javadoc -- in vain, nothing's changed.


It is really frustrating. Please help!

Try downloading the official javadoc from the Sun's site:
http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp (Java SE 6 Documentation)
and add this zip file in the platform manager. Then restart the IDE,
just in case (I didn't have to do it)... "Show JavaDoc" action should
work for you, at least I use it on Mac w/ 6.7.1 with no problems...

When I updated my IDE I noticed a plug-in for "Netbeans API Documentation" ver 2.25 7/23/09

I didn't load it myself, as my javadoc is good... but would that work for a Mac machine? Worth a try?

Probably no as this plugin is used for API documentation of the NetBeans
platform and therefore it is useful only if you develop a NetBeans IDE
plugin or a standalone NetBeans platform application...
