Javadoc running on the Java 2 SDK is not currently fully automated.
The one manual step is the creation of the Serialized Form page,
which is extremely complex and takes Doug about three full days
for each release. Josh and I have determined that we can fully
automate this with the addition of the "include" and "exclude"
arguments to the @serial tag. The reasons behind these special
cases are varied and complicated. Setting up a policy like this
for the Standard Edition would allow J2EE and J2ME to follow suit
with their Serialized Form pages.
This task breaks down to two parts:
1) Add "@serial include" and "@serial exclude" tags to doc comments
as appropriate. This was performed in bug report 4288648.
2) Modify the standard doclet to include/exclude the classes.
This is the task for this bug report.
