Crystal Reports Eclipse JavaDoc?

Installed the Crystal Reports plugin for Eclipse via Eclipse Update Manager successfully.

No JavaDocs, so went to website and could only find: SDK Developer Library XI 3.0 related downloadable javadocs, but it appears some of the classes in the Eclipse version are not in those JavaDocs.

Ideally I think the plugin should have an option to download the JavaDocs too, as makes API work harder without them!

    The API docs should be installed with the plugin - do you see it in Eclipse Help?

    Sincerely,

      Quick response!

      If I go in Eclipse to: Help -> Help Contents I can see 2 crystal report entries, being:

      1. Crystal Reports for Eclipse Designer Guide

      2. Crystal Reports for Eclipse Developer Guide

      If I press F2 over a method I see no proper JavaDoc info e.g. hovering over the following codeL

      CrystalReportViewer viewer = new CrystalReportViewer();

      viewer.refresh();

      boldviewer.setReportSource(reportSource);bold

      Gives:

      boldvoid com.crystaldecisions.report.web.viewer.ReportServerControl.setReportSource(Object arg0)

      throws ReportSDKExceptionBasebold

      All I am trying to do is run a report which connects to a DB, later will run a report which sucks in XML data (list in the data) and displays in a JSP page.

      Thanks in advance!
