Does anyone know a way (or even a ready-to-use tool) that generates JAVA source code files from javadoc HTML files?



Background:


If your development project makes use of external middleware and you start designing your application on an abstract level (e.g. using UML and a CASE tool), you need to model the API of the middleware, too. Many commercial JAVA middleware products come without source code but with an API documentation in javadoc compatible HTML format. It would be very helpful if one could generate at least some rudimentary JAVA source code files (including all the interface definitions) from the javadoc files available.

Alexander,

If you just want the "bare" definition (i mean an empty method), maybe it can bve easily written.

If you want more, your request is impossible. Is like asking a book starting from the summary.


But most of the uml tools are able to read the jar files and, with reflection, they can intergrated easily.
