I’m not sure why something as simple as generating javadoc is causing me such problems. What’s more concerning is that this is actually an issue I first reported 6 years ago and still have not found a solution. Its really a simple problem - I’d like to exclude generated java sources from javadoc generation. The generated sources are generated into a dedicated directory - I try to exclude on that directory name but this does not work. Considering I have another exclude based on a package name pattern that actually does work, I’d have to assume that the exclusions are relative name (package) based rather than directory name based. I went back and re-tried all the suggestions from Peter from that old thread just to verify that they still do not work.
So what is it I need to do to get these generated source files excluded from javadoc processing?
