Description
Name: eaT66865			Date: 09/16/2002


The RootDoc.classes() and PackageDoc.allClasses()
appear to do the same thing, but have different names.
If different, the api comments should make it clear.

Note:
allClasses() indicates that it includes errors
and exceptions, but classes() doesn't. But classes()
must do so, so that should be clarified, as well.

PUBLIC COMMENTS The distinction between classes() and allClasses() has been made clearer in the doc comments. No regression test is required as this is a change only to the doc comments. ###@###.### 2002-10-10

EVALUATION Changed synopsis from: JavaDoc API inconsistency to: RootDoc.classes() and PackageDoc.allClasses() inconsistent comments The methods do similar things: RootDoc.classes() gets all doc'd classes & interfaces in all packages, while PackageDoc.allClasses() gets all doc'd classes & interfaces in given package. ###@###.### 2002-09-25
