    Details

      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "1.8.0-ea"
      Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0-ea-b113)
      Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.0-b55, mixed mode)

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      If you execute javadoc on a file containing a class which subclasses java.text.NumberFormat or java.text.DateFormat, it will emit the following error and die:

      javadoc: error - com.sun.tools.javac.code.Symbol$CompletionFailure: class file for sun.util.locale.provider.LocaleProviderAdapter not found






      REGRESSION. Last worked in version 7u45

      ADDITIONAL REGRESSION INFORMATION:
      java version "1.8.0-ea"
      Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0-ea-b113)
      Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.0-b55, mixed mode)


      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Here we show the file that will cause the error, and then the javadoc command you run on that file to see the error.

      > cat JavadocFailure.java
      import java.text.NumberFormat;

      public class JavadocFailure extends NumberFormat
      {
      }

      > javadoc JavadocFailure.java
      Loading source file JavadocFailure.java...
      Constructing Javadoc information...
      Standard Doclet version 1.8.0-ea
      Building tree for all the packages and classes...
      Generating ./JavadocFailure.html...
      com.sun.tools.javac.code.Symbol$CompletionFailure: class file for sun.util.locale.provider.LocaleProviderAdapter not found
      javadoc: error - com.sun.tools.javac.code.Symbol$CompletionFailure: class file for sun.util.locale.provider.LocaleProviderAdapter not found
      1 error


      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      I expect javadoc to run to completion without throwing an exception and dying.
      ACTUAL -
      javadoc throws an exception and dies:

      > javadoc JavadocFailure.java
      Loading source file JavadocFailure.java...
      Constructing Javadoc information...

      1 error

      ERROR MESSAGES/STACK TRACES THAT OCCUR :
      javadoc reports the following error and dies:

      javadoc: error - com.sun.tools.javac.code.Symbol$CompletionFailure: class file for sun.util.locale.provider.LocaleProviderAdapter not found


      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.
