If some CDK class inherits JavaDoc from a class outside the classpath, it is not showing up in the output. This problem is known and outlined in this StackOverflow question too:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1243063/inheritdoc-not-inheriting-superclass-javadoc-in-eclipse

Right now, the signature code is suffering from the JavaDoc limitation.

I do not see a solution to this right now :(

    Gilleans soluton, while a bit hacky would work - we coud set up a target in javadoc.xml to extract the sources for the external libs and incldue them in the source path of javadoc
