CLASSDOC HOME PAGE
classdoc is a Java reverse engineering API documentation generator based on the Java Doclet API.
Think of classdoc as an alternative to Java's standard tool javadoc which generates Java API documentation by parsing classes and source files to create HTML files or other documentation formats.
classdoc does the same, with the important difference that it does not need source files. This way, you can create a complete overview on the classes and their members (field, methods, ...) of any Java program.
classdoc is freely available including the source code. It is licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL).
The following schemes visualize the differences between classdoc and javadoc.
The download archive contains the compiled classdoc classes, documentation, the source code and an example of classdoc and javadoc output generated from classdoc implementation.
This is also included in the download archive.

Star Office 5.2 API Documentation for Java
This documentation has been completely reverse engineered by classdoc from the .jar files included in the StarOffice 5.2 SDK.
* The postscript documentation has been generated using the TexDoclet by c2-tech. After 2191 pages (!) the doclet stopped due to a an out of memory error. This has not been fixed, however, the resulting postscript file is valid and a nice example for what classdoc can generate when used with third-party-doclets.
