JDiff Doclet ------------ Matthew Doar firstname.lastname@example.org The JDiff doclet is used to generate a report describing the difference between two public Java APIs. The file jdiff.html contains the reference page for JDiff. The latest version of JDiff can be downloaded at: http://sourceforge.net/projects/javadiff To use the Ant task on your own project, see example.xml. More examples of using JDiff to compare the public APIs of J2SE1.3 and J2SE1.4 can be seen at http://www.jdiff.org For an example with the source distribution, run "ant" and look at the HTML output in ./build/reports/example/changes.html The page at ./build/reports/example/changes/com.acme.sp.SPImpl.html shows what a typical page of changes looks like. System Requirements ------------------- JDiff has been tested with all releases of Java since J2SE1.2 but releases of JDiff after 1.10.0 focus on JDK1.5. License ------- JDiff is licensed under the Lesser GNU General Public License (LGPL). See the file LICENSE.txt. Acknowledgements ---------------- JDiff uses Stuart D. Gathman's Java translation of Gene Myers' O(ND) difference algorithm. JDiff uses Xerces 1.4.2 from http://www.apache.org. JDiff also includes a script to use the classdoc application from http://classdoc.sourceforge.net or http://www.jensgulden.de, by Jens Gulden, (email@example.com), to call a doclet such as jdiff on a .jar file rather than on source. Many thanks to the reviewers at Sun and Vitria who gave feedback on early versions of JDiff output, and also to the distillers of Laphroaig, and to Arturo Fuente for his consistently fine cigars which helped inspire much of this work.
