      Description

      The setting excludePackageNames is not working, as I would expect, or should be renamed to something like excludePathNames with an updated description, to reveal what it is really doing.

      I have the default layout for the sources, i.e. they get stored in the ${project.basedir}\src\main\java subfolder of my project.
      For testing purposes I sometimes create classes in the subpackage my.companyname.temp, which I do not want to have included in the generated javadoc, why I use the following excludePackageNames setting:

      ...
      <!-- Exclude files in temporary packages -->
      <excludePackageNames>*.temp.*</excludePackageNames>
      ...
      

      in my pom.xml.

      By doing this, I wanted to exclude all .java sources in the folders ${project.basedir}\src\main\java*\temp* from the javadoc generation, but what I got was an exclusion of all .java sources, if there is a subfolder with the name temp in any segment of the path, even in the ${project.basedir}.

      So, after moving the project into e.g. the folder D:\temp no javadoc gets generated at all.
