    • OS:
      generic

      Description

      Need a mechanism to set user javadoc path

      --------------------USER REPORT -------------

      FULL PRODUCT VERSION :
      java version "9"
      Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 9+178)
      Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 9+178, mixed mode)

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.10586]

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      I have a jar, gson.jar, and its accompanying javadoc jar, gson-javadoc.jar, as built by maven, which I believe uses the Java API Documentation Generator.

      If I run jshell --class-path gson.jar;gson-javadoc.jar and then try and view the documentation, none is found.

      jshell> com.google.gson.Gson <tab> <tab>

      com.google.gson.Gson
      <no documentation found>

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      jshell --class-path gson.jar;gson-javadoc.jar

      jshell> com.google.gson.Gson <tab> <tab>



      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      The class-use documentation is displayed. By association, any javadoc loaded on the classpath can be accessed.
      ACTUAL -
      com.google.gson.Gson
      <no documentation found>

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.
