Description

Name: rmT116609			Date: 01/09/2002


java version "1.4.0-beta3"
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition (build 1.4.0-beta3-b84)
Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 1.4.0-beta3-b84, mixed mode)


 DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :

The documentation for ProgramElementDoc.qualifiedName() says that it will return "Foo.bar()" for the bar() method of the
Foo class in the unnamed package. However, it actually returns "Foo.bar". This is not used anywhere in the standard
doclet, and can be worked around by using (elt.qualifiedName()+((ExecutableMemberDoc)elt).signature()).
 Fixing the documentation would be as effective as fixing the method.

PUBLIC COMMENTS

Fixed by removing parentheses from bar() as suggested.
No regression test required, as this is a doc comment change.

EVALUATION

Looks like changing the doc comment is the backward compatible way to go.
