java -ddoc option

One customization :

There is now more than lakh's of project developed in Java, that went for a maintenance, enhancement and servicing. The common problem in which most of the company stuck of is with the chain of ongoing and incoming employee. For a new engineer its difficult to understand the code written by someone else. And the worst happens when they don't have any supporting document to understand the code.

I am here proposing a java -ddoc option which generated a HTML(XML) format design document of the work flow of the code along with the output of the code.

It tells user about the class variables, share variables, method flow and Native API's(if any). Being Java an Open Java, engineers can understand the internal functionality and can perfectly understand the requirement of the written code.
