Application Program Interface (API) allows programmers to use predefined functions instead of writing them from scratch. Description of API elements that is Methods, Classes, Constructors etc. is provided through API Reference Documentation. Hence API Reference Documentation acts as a guide to user or developer to use API's. Different types of Knowledge Types are generated by processing this API Reference Documentation. And this Knowledge Types will be used for Classification and Searching of Java API Reference Documentation.
