Fixed ‚View Javadoc in external Browser‘ in IntelliJ IDEA

15. März 2008 3 Kommentare

An annoyance in IntelliJ IDEA was that the command ‚View Javadoc in external Browser‘ did not work
per default on a mac. On a mac with it’s own java sources the api-doc are located inside a jar and therefore
not able to browse through a normal webbrowser. (If you know a browser which can handle a jar://xxx address let me now in a comment)

IntelliJ does not open or extract those files per default so I did by hand with:

cd /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.5.0/Home
jar xf docs.jar // this will extract the contents of the jar
jar xf appledocs.jar // dito

No we need to point IntelliJ to the extracted files. Open your Preferences -> Project Preferences.
Click on the desired JDK and then click on the tab ‚javadocs‘. Remove the old entries for the jar and enter
the extracted path

Not it works. To test it, move the cursor to a class,member whatever and press <Shift>+<F1>. The appropriate javadoc should open in your default browser.

This is not a bug fix, just a bad default configuration. I’d like to see this fixed in the next release…

groovy-script: lookup classes in jar-files

11. März 2008 Keine Kommentare

Recently I had following problem. I had a bunch of jar-files and I had to find out which jar-file was holding a specific class.

This is a common task, because your java-code told you that a class XY was not in you classpath, so you would have to search for it, if you don’t know already where to find it.

Since I had to do it already 2 times and as I am learning groovy I decided to write a short groovy-script
(are there long groovy-scripts?) which allows me to do that.

It is pretty straight-forward so here it is: searchJar.groovy

Hudson has a groovy console

7. März 2008 Keine Kommentare

I am playing around with hudson as a integration server.

So far it is very nice and intuitiv, you can even trigger builds by email, mobile etc! And just
yesterday it has groovy-console builtin for monitoring maven2-builds!

Isn’t it a good day when you recover that your new tools already know each other? 😉

Although I have to admit that hudson lacks some features I would like to have such as
access-control per project. For now there is an access-control (LDAP, Matrix-like etc) for the whole build-server…

I just read about JSR 666.

First I took it for serious, but when i read about SchrödingerException
I could not help laughing.

My other favorite tough was ‚import *;

It seems to me, maven makes quite a buzz nowadays. I just read another RSS-Feed
which praises the maven site-generation:

New development tool discovered

Well, it is not new, but new to me.

It’s name is COBERTURA. I saw it on the plugins-list of maven.

It can be run as an Ant target or as a standalone. It integrates nicely into maven-reports and here is what it does:
