Maintenance Review, approved on 5 December 2013:
Two significant changes are proposed, in addition to minor changes to fix errata:
a) A new member NATIVE_HEADER_OUTPUT is added to the enum javax.tools.StandardLocation
b) A new class javax.tools.DocumentationTool is added to provide API access to a documentation tool such as javadoc, but analogy with javax.tools.JavaCompiler, which provides API access to a Java compiler such as javac.
