The doxygen configuration file.

Doxygen shows a warning for the following example code:

1 public class Test {
2 /**
3 * @param args The command line arguments.
4 * @throws java.lang.Exception Always thrown.
5 */
6 public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
7 throw new Exception("Hello World!");
8 }
9 } warning: missing ( in exception list on member main

Its not really clear what it is complaining about but apparently does that for every function which throws exceptions. The same code processed with doxygen 1.7.6 is fine.

Doxygen configuration attached.

Confirmed. Should be fixed in the next GIT update.

This bug was previously marked ASSIGNED, which means it should be fixed in
doxygen version 1.8.6. Please verify if this is indeed the case. Reopen the
bug if you think it is not fixed and please include any additional information
that you think can be relevant (preferrably in the form of a self-contained example).

Thanks a lot for the quick action! Bug is fixed, example code in this report as well as our production code runs through Doxygen without any warnings (again).
