Java EE 7 JavaDoc on Dash

DashI’ve recently discovered Dash. It’s an API documentation browser which gives you offline access to 130+ API documentation sets. So once it’s installed, you can download the docsets you want and here you are with a single tool for all your documentation.

I’ve installed all the docsets I needeed (Javadoc, SQL documentation, Man, Boostrap 3, HTML 5, CSS…) and I find myself using it more and more often, for browsing and searching APIs. But something was missing : the Java EE 7 API Javadoc !!! Dash let’s you create and manage your own docsets. So I’ve created the Java EE 7 Dash Docset and I’m sharing it with you.

Download Java EE 7 Docset

Download my Java EE 7 Dash Docset from Bintray. It’s a zip file (javaee7_docset.tgz) that you unzip into the Dash Docset directory (on Mac it’s under ~/Library/Application Support/Dash/DocSets/). To install the Java EE 7 Docset on your Mac just do as follow:

$ mkdir ~/Library/Application\ Support/Dash/DocSets/Java_EE7
$ tar -xf javaee7_docset.tgz -C ~/Library/Application\ Support/Dash/DocSets/Java_EE7/

Then, you launch Dash and you should get this :

Java EE 7 in Dash

I’ve requested this docset to be included in Dash. So maybe one day it will come by default. In the meantime, feel free to download it.
