WizTools.org Javadoc Jar Viewer

Many projects have started distributing their JavaDocs as a single Jar file. For viewing these files offline, I have to do the following:

  1. Create a temporary folder
  2. Extract the content of the JavaDoc Jar to this temporary directory
  3. View the JavaDoc in a browser

To avoid these steps, we have the JavaDoc Jar Viewer. It does all the above. To execute it:

$ java -jar javadoc-jar-viewer-NN.jar project-NN-javadoc.jar

This will open the JavaDoc's index.html in your default browser.
