Allow Javadoc sourcepath to be set directly

Currently the Javadoc sourcepath can only be set using options.addPathOption(‘sourcepath’, blabla). Other things, like classpath, bootclasspath, doclet, docletpath are all included in the CoreJavadocOptions. Since sourcepath is also a default Javadoc option, it should be included in the CoreJavadocOptions.

We need to set the sourcepath because we’re using GWT jars, which contain broken source files. Without a sourcepath the Javadoc tool will break on these jars, since it searches the whole classpath for sourcefiles.

Good idea, raised as GRADLE-2778.

Would you be up for adding it?

I’ll have a look and open a pull request if I find the time to fix it myself :slight_smile:
