The removal of frames from the API documentation makes it less than useful

      Description

      ADDITIONAL SYSTEM INFORMATION :
      This happens on your web site and is not OS related.

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      The modifications to the API makes it hard to find information. Please bring back the frames technology that made it easier to locate information. If this is not possible, the Module, Package, Class and Use links need to work. Currently you have to either search for the class or click the All Classes link, which is not in the Java 12 API, and search through the 1000's of classes that are shown. This gives inconvenient user experience.

      I have been a professional programmer for 25 years and a college professor for the past 9. This makes it almost impossible to find what you are looking for in the Java API.

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      Go to the API

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      Something that provides useful information. When you finally find what you are looking for, the information is presented but the usability of this site is horrible.
      ACTUAL -
      A useful API to help find different classes, packages and other information about the Java programming language.
