Description
The javac manpage in mustang beta

http://java.sun.com/javase/6/docs/tooldocs/solaris/javac.html

does not discuss the options added to support JSR 269 or other new Mustang options.  This should be fixed.  The JSR 269 options are covered by ccc requests

6266848 JSR 269: Provide implementation of language model and annotation processor
6363481 javac usage suggests -A is valid but ignores it
6365040 Support multiple processor arguments for javac -processor options (post beta 1)

                                    

Comments
EVALUATION

The compiler team needs to provide the information to go into the javac man page
(in plain text or html or whatever is easiest).
They need to indicate anything that is OS specific.

Documentation can then format the text in html and nroff and sgml and
put it into the appropriate directories for each OS.
