I face several javadoc errors (ending with NullPointerException) with openjdk 9 while updating package htsjdk.
I saw on internet several bugs related to javadoc.
Error ends with :
javadoc: error - An exception occurred while building a component: TagInfo
If I delete impacted files from doc, I go further but many files are impacted.
Anyone faced and could solve this?
It used to work on JDK8.
Example impacted "doc":
* Calls close() on all elements of <code>objs</code> that implement Closeable
* @param objs A list of potentially closeable objects
* NOTE: This method must take a List<? extends Object>, not List<Object>, otherwise the overload above will be selected
* if the argument is not exactly List<Object>.
Removing the last 2 lines part works.
Last option would be to remove javadoc package or patch all files... :-(
