    I don't believe IBM provides Javadoc except where a feature is IBM specific, for example the JZOS feature for IBM Java for z/OS.

    For the base Javadoc, see the Oracle site http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/documentation/index.html

    But there is a difference between IBM and Oracle JRE v7: In IBM version, java.util.List.toArray() always returns Object], whereas Oracle implementation returns a String[ when my List is a Strings list (created by List<String> myList = new ArrayList<String>();

    I want to check this difference from Javadoc.

    It sounds like one of the implementations is incorrect, not being a language lawyer I'll not speculate which.

    A PMR may be in order to clarify.

    I couldn't find a meaningful product while creating the service request (SR). When I type Java, I cannot see anything related with Windows. The closest match is AIX JAVA 7 7.0.0

    I'm actually using Rational Functional Tester, so I chose it and created the request (59478,001,862); but I don't think that RFT support engineers will be interested in this SR.

    Thanks for the comments..

    In case anyone else is looking for the API, it is now in the information center for each release, see: http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/java/jdk/docs.html

    The non-security API covers IBM function only. Differences between IBM and Oracle implementations should be documented, but it sounds like this one was missed.
