This bug tracks issues to examine in the javadoc support for profiles once it reaches jdk8. At this time, the javadoc changes are in the profiles-staging forest awaiting PIT. They are not expected to be pushed to jdk8 master until Feb 20.
1. The default view is "All Profiles", I think it should be "All Packages". The reason is that 99% of developers will not be targeting runtimes that implement Profiles of Java SE and so they shouldn't need to care about the All Profiles view.
2. There is a package-summary per profile that only lists one profile name at the top. This can be confusing when selecting a profile as it gives the impression that a package is only in one profile. For example, if I select "compact2" and java.io then the package description gives the impression to the reader that this package is only in compact2 whereas it is in all profiles.
3. The overview-summary.html has a new Profiles section but looks a bit odd to have a Description column when there isn't any description.
