AEM 6.X UberJar Java Doc


I discovered a useful resource in Adobe’s repo not too long ago: the uber-jar-6.2.0-javadoc.jar. Now instead of searching the internet for all those API docs (that may or may not be useful, depending) you can go right to the source they’re generated from by downloading and unzipping them. In addition to class and method usage, Adobe also lists all constants, classes, deprecated classes, hierarchies, packages…lots of stuff that I wish I would have known about a long time ago. Here’s the link for the 6.2 jar location, and going up a directory shows the directories for a lot of the other 6.x versions. You can also link these in your IDE if you’re using IntelliJ (not the free one) or Eclipse, so you don’t even have to leave the IDE to read the docs. Just make sure you’re not reading the decompiled source code. :)

This may not be news to you, but it definitely was to me so I thought it was worth sharing with the community. Hopefully, it saves you some time.
