Hi,

Please check I am getting this below error message while intalling the JAutoDoc

An error occurred while installing the items
session context was:(profile=_Users_ashokram_Ashok_Applications_Eclipse.app_Contents_Eclipse, phase=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.engine.phases.Install, operand=null --> [R]net.sf.jautodoc 1.14.0, action=org.eclipse.equinox.internal.p2.touchpoint.eclipse.actions.InstallBundleAction).

Environment

  1. Mac - 10.13.6
  2. Eclipse Version - Oxygen.3a Release (4.7.3a), Build id: 20180405-1200

A useful tool, in so far as it goes.
In my experience this tool is used to save time with satisfying some corresponding Checkstyle rules.
Beware that mindlessly generating Javadoc comments on otherwise documented classes adds little, if any, value. Developers need to learn to actually write some *meaningful* comments in the generated fields, but very few do so.

A link from the marketplace description above, into the actual JAutodoc site jautodoc.sourceforge.net would not go amiss.
