>            Reporter: scolebourne2
>            Assignee: Michael Osipov
>             Fix For: 3.0.0
> The Oracle team have added the doclint tool to JDK 8. The tool validates 
> Javadoc as part of a standard Javadoc run. Unfortunately, with the default 
> settings, it rejects many HTML elements that are perfectly acceptable to 
> browsers, and all invalid Javadoc references (@links). This is likely to 
> prove very unpopular with developers.
> Action needed:
> 1) Provide a maven-javadoc-plugin configuration item and property that can 
> control the doclint tool (currently this requires using additionalparam 
> 2) Apply the {{-Xdoclint:none}} option by default, so that doclint is opt-in, 
> not opt-out (ie. fix Oracle's messed up default). This will also make it much 
> easier for developers to handle migration to JDK 8.
