Native javadoc functionality for all ILE development languages
Within the java language, javadoc provides a consistent documentation facility that encourages modular design and code reuse. While there have been third-party functions provided for some IBM i development languages, it hasn't covered all of the available ILE languages. By providing a consistent documentation method across all of them, efforts at modernizing in-house development would be encouraged to take advantage of more existing resources by gaining faster visibility to what is available.
Using javadoc as the standard, all other native ILE development languages would be documented at the top of each source member and either accessed through existing 3rd party documentation tools (Freshe X-Analysis or Hawkeye Pathfinder) as well as an option to be exported to a local instance of the HTTP server. This would also provide a consistent facility for change management applications to update the documentation during deployment.
