How important are javadocs?  If you are offering API services to developers, how often do they reference these docs?

Thanks!

If you are offering an API out to developers then java docs are extremely important.  As a developer I start with the documentation , java docs and examples as a starting point to using any API.

Ok - so as a developer, you do prefer javadocs - downloadable or online or interactive?  What is your preference. Thanks!
