>                 Key: MJAVADOC-628
>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven Javadoc Plugin
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: javadoc
>    Affects Versions: next-release
>            Reporter: Max
>            Priority: Major
> For example, google gson ([]) has pointed their javadoc
to [] on their But currently,
maven-javadoc-plugin will only try to fetch [] ,
which apparently is an invalid address. It doesn't make sense to have github, a source control
system to keep track of generated files as well.
>  Many popular libraries are hosting javadoc with [|] already
(eg, mockito / spark), and the pattern is very simple as well:[group_id]/[artifact_id]/[version_id]/package-list
>  This will work with <links> tag, but that's quite tedious as everytime we have
to manually keep things in sync when we add / remove dependencies or update dependency versions.
> Thus, it will be quite helpful if maven-javadoc-plugin can just automatically try this
url pattern from the dependency list as well.
