Great.. just what I wanted. - cheers Wei

Netbeans site has lots of duplicate instructions on importing other libraries & jars for custom javadoc but there I couldn't find help on how to import the java core doc apis

your post was so helpful, i haven't realized I needed javadoc until I was on trouble, but now everything seems to work fine

I've added a jar file to netbeans, how do I get the javadocs to show up when I insert a class from that jar? Same way?

NetBeans 6.5 you can add the .zip archive directly in place of the address of the javadoc. Using the excellent advice it finds the javadoc. Thanks
