A very cool new site:  It contains all the Sun JavaDocs and also allows you to search directly from the URL.

I created the following bookmark with FireFox:

Keyword: jd

This way, I can type "jd url" in the FireFox address bar and I get the documentation for right away. 

Even though I use an IDE, I still find myself browsing the HTML Javadocs with a browser fairly often, and even sometimes resorting to "javap|grep" to quickly find a method in a class.  The good thing about the javadocs Web site is not that it provides javadocs online, obviously (I already have those in my toolbar) but the simple text search that it enables.

I only have two complaints:

  • It doesn't contain the 1.5 Javadocs
  • If your search yields several hits, only the first one is displayed (I'd like to get a list of all the hits so I can drill down further).

Cool idea nevertheless.

i wish it could be more extensive then just java API, like examples related to that subject etc... i remember there was a SF project about it..

And if you enter an invalid API, it just does a google that what you would expect?

You can also use the Firefox search plugin.
It's available here :

Have you tried Jude?

I have two mozilla shortcuts which use google's "inurl:" and "title:" search to look up the javadoc entry. The first one uses "I'm feeling luckly" to directly open up the first entry it finds while the second does a regular google search. Changing to use a different
jdk version just involves editing the urls.\.4\.2/docs/api/
Keyword: jdk!\.4\.2/docs/api/
Keyword: jdk
