How to attach source or JavaDoc in eclipse for any jar file e.g. JavaFX?

79

Presently I'm working with JavaFX. Whenever I hover over a method of JavaFX its gives me the following error:

'Note: This element neither has attached source nor attached Javadoc and hence no Javadoc could be found'

How should I resolve this? How can I attach the javadoc or source so that I could see the description of the methods?

You can configure the Javadocs with downloading jar, basically javadocs will be referred directly from internet.

Complete steps:

  1. Open the Build Path page of the project (right click, properties, Java build path).
  2. Open the Libraries tab.
  3. Expand the node of the library in question (JavaFX).
  4. Select JavaDoc location and click edit.
  5. Enter the location to the file which contains the Javadoc. Specifically for the javaFX javadoc enter http://docs.oracle.com/javafx/2.0/api/

for offline javadocs, you can download from : http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/documentation/java-se-7-doc-download-435117.html

After clicking Accept License Agreement you can download javafx-2_2_0-apidocs.zip
