First of all, Thinking in Java is a great book-It is available free on
Regarding javadoc,
-Create a folder and store the class files that you want to create javadocs for.
-You need to hava a javadoc.exe.
-Using command prompt, type javadoc -d c:**** c:&&&&&*.java where
c:**** represents the folder you want to create the javadocs in, and
c:&&&&&*.java represents the folder where to take class files to create javadocs from.
Once this is over, simply go to the c:**** folder where you will
find .html files with the entire documentation.

Hope that this helps and is not confusing!
