JDK Documentation Installation

This section describes how to install JDK Documentation on your own machine.

To learn JDK more effectively, you definitely need to have a copy of the JDK Documentation installed on your own machine. JDK Documentation provides you detailed information of all classes and methods used in JDK. Here is what I did to download and install JDK 10 Documentation on my local machine.

To verify the installation, open the "C:\Program Files\Java\jdk-10.0.1\docs\index.html" with a Web browser. You should see the JDK 10 Documentation starting page as shown in this picture:

Click the "java.logging" module on the JDK 10 Documentation page to see the API documentation of the java.logging module.
