Attach OpenMRS JavaDocs source in IDE

importing code into your IDE should bring you the javadocs, from the ide u can generate docs like Activity: Generate a Javadoc from a sample project | Documenting APIs in eclipse , here’s an online host

When working with qaframework, I have a class that extends class called Page which is coded in another module. Am able to import the class and implement its functionalities but when i try to navigate to its source code, I get a message “Source not found”

you need to compile the hosting module with mvn clean install and then proceed for you to access the sources in any other project given the dependency existing
