Java 6[edit]

This should be updated for the Java 6 docs http://java.sun.com/javase/6/docs/api/ --Spoon! 00:16, 14 December 2006 (UTC)

Done. —Doug Bell talk 01:15, 14 December 2006 (UTC)

Issue with books[edit]

This template should be improved to better support books/PDFs. For example, if you try to create a PDF file from book Wikipedia:Books/Data structures, then article on Stack (data structure) with the following fragment:

...Java's library contains a Stack class that is a specialization of Vector. This could be considered a design flaw because the inherited get() method from Vector ignores the LIFO constraint of the Stack.

will be almost unreadable in PDF:

Java's library contains a Stack (http:/ / java. sun. com/
javase/ 6/ docs/ api/ java/ util/ Stack. html) class that is a specialization of
Vector (http:/ / java. sun. com/ javase/ 6/ docs/ api/ java/ util/ Vector.
html). This could be considered a design flaw because the inherited get() method from
Vector (http:/ / java. sun. com/ javase/ 6/ docs/ api/ java/ util/ Vector.
html) ignores the LIFO constraint of the Stack (http:/ / java. sun. com/ javase/ 6/
docs/ api/ java/ util/ Stack. html).

To fix this, the Web link should be hidden when in print, see "Hide in print" template in Help:Books/for experts. Andreas Kaufmann (talk) 21:23, 21 March 2009 (UTC)

More easily, you can create the print version of this template at Template:Javadoc:SE/Print. Headbomb {ταλκκοντριβς – WP Physics} 15:18, 15 February 2010 (UTC)
Alright, created. Everything should look good. Let me know if there are any problems. Headbomb {ταλκκοντριβς – WP Physics} 04:55, 2 March 2010 (UTC)

Fixed link from Sun to Oracle site[edit]

Turned out that the Template:Javadoc:SE used the Template:Javadoc:SE/Home URL constant, which in turn pointed to sun's homepage, which luckily redirected to Oracle. I just changed it, and now it directly points toward oracle site. Hervegirod (talk) 18:18, 22 December 2010 (UTC)

Need help in converting this template to Java 8[edit]

Java 8 was just released. I did a quick fix to point to the Java 8 documentation, but I found out that Oracle's HTML anchors now have the parenthesis characters '(' and ')' replaced with dashes like '-'. Could someone rewrite the template to accommodate this change? I reverted back to the Java 7 documentation to avoid this damage until someone can rewrite this code to substitute parenthesis with dashes. Jesse Viviano (talk) 01:51, 20 March 2014 (UTC)

Jesse, could you please give an example of a page where this happens? I've went through quite a few transclusions and can't find one where this error happens. APerson (talk!) 02:43, 29 July 2015 (UTC)
