You can merge FrameMaker content and javadoc content by taking javadoc output into FrameMaker via MIF. A couple of jobs back, about 15 years ago, we did exactly that, by having a developer write an add-in (doclet?) that caused javadoc to output MIF instead of HTML. We then incorporated that content into our developers' docs.
If I remember correctly, javadoc could include content that wasn't created from source code comments. You could probably use HTML created from Frame if you wanted to go in the other direction.

Expensive professional authoring tools can be a good investment if they make you more efficient. I found ePublisher Pro a lot more flexible and easy to use than RoboHelp. However, if your goal is merging authored content with javadoc and the like, I'm not sure that FrameMaker can do that. You might want to take a look at HelpStudio and Document!X. If you're considering moving to DITA, you might be better off dumping FrameMaker in favor of Oxygen XML or AuthorIt. ePublisher Pro at least theoretically allows you to mix and match FrameMaker and DITA source, so that might ease the transition. for more resources and info.
