Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all. - an API Lookup Service

A friend just IM'ed me a link to This is a very cool site that allows you to lookup API information on practically everything I use: HTML, CSS, Java, Spring, Ant. Definitely a good bookmark to have.

It seems really slow to respond--maybe the Raible effect is beginning to rival the /. effect.

I used to use the Docjar Eclipse plugin, which was pretty cool. You could go straight to Docjar's cached JavaDocs for almost any class just by right-clicking on a usage of it in the IDE. Unfortunately the plugin no longer works with Eclipse 3.2, and there is no way to report the bug to the authors :-(

We have put in beta version a few weeks ago a web site and service which might interest some of you too:

It provides an access to open source projects javadocs and sources, by revision, and completely integrated with the IDE (only Eclipse for the moment), i.e. you can use your usual navigation in source, code completion with named args and javadoc, etc., without any configuration. Should be a good time saver for those of you who use open source projects :-)

I clicked over to look at WOJ. It looks interesting. Has anyone tried it? Does it work? Is it responsive to the changing landscape of open-source projects? Is it worth 60 euros (or 140 euros for the pro version)?

Obviously my opinion is biased, but as a commercial service we ensure a good quality of service: good bandwidth, good response time (most beta testers don't notice any difference with local files), and a good database of projects. Concerning the changing landscape of open-source projects, we try to do our best, and if a project is missing, you can either add it yourself with a simple wizard, or send an e-mail, and usually we add the project in less than 2 days. And is it worth 60 euros, if you think about the time you spend configuring your IDE each year, I think it's worth its price: 60 euros a year, it's only 5 euros a month, it's less than a coffea per day :-) And stay tuned, we will certainly have discount prices with the official launch of the commercial version.
