ajdoc renders HTML documentation for AspectJ
constructs as well as the Java constructs that
In addition ajdoc displays the crosscutting
nature in the form of links. That means, for example, that
you can see everything affecting a method when reading
the documentation for the method.
To run ajdoc, use one of the scripts in the
AspectJ bin directory.
The ajdoc implementation builds on Sun's javadoc
command line tool, and you use it in the same way with many of
the same options
(javadoc options are not documented here;
for more information on javadoc usage, see the
Javadoc homepage http://java.sun.com/j2se/javadoc/) .
As with ajc (but unlike javadoc),
you pass ajdoc all your aspect source files
and any files containing types affected by the aspects;
it's often easiest to just pass all the .java
and .aj files in your system.
ajdoc will try to find package sources using the
specified sourcepath if you list packages on the command line.
To provide an argfile listing the source files, you can use
use the same argfile (@filename) conventions
as with ajc.
For example, the following documents all the source files listed
in argfile.lst, sending the output to
the docDir output directory.
ajdoc -d docDir @argfile.lst
See the ajc documentation for details on the text file format.
ajdoc honours ajc options. See
the ajc documentation for details on
ajdoc currently requires the
tools.jar from J2SE 1.3 to be on the classpath.
Normally the scripts set this up, assuming that your JAVA_HOME variable points to an appropriate installation of Java.
You may need to provide this jar when using a different
version of Java or a JRE.

ajdoc -private -d doc spacewar
(Use -private to get all members, since
may of the interesting ones in spacewar are not public.)
ajdoc -private -d doc @spacewar/demo.lst
to use the argfile associated with Spacewar.
