How do you install JDocFilter?
First thing to understand is that JDocFilter does not require any application or tool to work. The installation porcess will just help you take a standard Javadoc directory that includes all the Javadoc pages, and integrate JDocFilter with it.
The installation process requires a JRE (version 1.4 and above), but after the installation porcess no runtime is used, so users do not require the presence of a JRE (even though they probably have one...).
Three installation options are available:
1. Using the supplied script to install / uninstall
In the download package a short script named filterInstall.bat / filterInstall.sh is available.
Install example :
>filterInstall -u c:\javadoc_dir
Where c:\javadoc_dir is the directory of your Javadoc (this is the one with the index.html in it).
2. Using ANT tasks
Installing using the supplied ANT tasks is a good way to integrate JDocFilter with your build scripts, right after you use the javadoc task to create the documentation.
ANT script example (install and uninstall):
<taskdef name="filterInstaller" classname="org.jdocfilter.tasks.FilterInstallerTask" classpath="jdocfilter.jar" /> <taskdef name="filterUninstaller" classname="org.jdocfilter.tasks.FilterUninstallerTask" classpath="jdocfilter.jar" /> <target name="installFilter"> <filterInstaller docdir="c:/javadoc_dir"/> </target> <target name="uninstallFilter"> <filterUninstaller docdir="c:/javadoc_dir"/> </target>
3. Manual installation
If you want to manually install JDocFilter for some reason, this is what you need to do:
