Java 1.4.2 update broke my java docs.

Ok, I installed the 4.2 update (against my better judgement because java updates always seem to break something or other) and low-and-behold my java docs are nowhere to be found. I get an error message in the upper status bar of the document view to the effect of file not found when I click on the java 1.4.1 API Reference: J2SE link in the doc viewer window. You'd think this would have been updated to click here for 1.4.2 docs dummy!!! but no dice. I've looked for a compressed file or a 1.4.2 index.html file, or a .jar file for 1.4.2 to no avail.



I had alread done sudo /Developer/Documentation/Java/scripts/unjarJavaDocumentation.sh when I was still using 1.4.1 and I've tried it again after installing 1.4.2 again to no avail. I got this after all of the needed files where extracted when I reattempted to install the java docs:



Code:




java.io.FileNotFoundException: /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.4.1/Home/docs.jar (No such file or directory)

Now I realize that most vesiges of 1.4.1 should have been removed whne 1.4.2 was installed. I feel though Apple should have given me (documented also) a method of reinstalling the needed docs.



Does anyone know how to repair this so I have my beautiful Java docs back?

    I downloaded the 1.4.2 docs from sun and stuck thos in an appropriat folder. I'm still missing Java 1.4 API Reference: Apple Extensions documentation and how do I update the document view to reflect the location of my 1.4.2 docs?
