doclint reports error: "error bad use of '>'"

    Details

    • Subcomponent:
    • Introduced In Version:
      8
    • CPU:
      x86_64
    • OS:
      windows_7

      Description

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "1.8.0_102"
      Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_102-b14)
      Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.102-b14, mixed mode)

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      When compiling JavaDoc in JDK 8, doclint reports an occurrence of greater than ('>') as an error in the properly escaped statement below:

          <enumeration value="numeric"/>

      This in turn breaks the processing of Java enumeration classes generated by the JAX-B compiler (javax.xml). The workaround requires disabling doclint for all JavaDoc processing, meaning actual HTML errors go uncaught.

      REGRESSION. Last worked in version 7u80

      ADDITIONAL REGRESSION INFORMATION:
      java version "1.8.0_102"
      Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_102-b14)
      Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.102-b14, mixed mode)

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      1) Define an xml schema that includes an enumeration
      2) Compile it with the JAX-B compiler to generate Java classes
      3) Attempt to generate JavaDoc for the resulting project

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      I expected output from JavaDoc that would probably have included warnings and errors from JavaDoc I wrote that violated the HTML 4 standard.
      ACTUAL -
      "error bad use of '>'"

      ERROR MESSAGES/STACK TRACES THAT OCCUR :
      "error bad use of '>'"

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.

      CUSTOMER SUBMITTED WORKAROUND :
      I can avoid the problem by disabling doclint, but at the cost of turning off all Java document verification
