Documenting Java Code

suggest change


Documentation for java code is often generated using javadoc. Javadoc was created by Sun Microsystems for the purpose of generating API documentation in HTML format from java source code. Using the HTML format gives the convenience of being able to hyperlink related documents together.



Javadoc is a tool included with the JDK that allows in-code comments to be converted to an HTML documentation. The Java API Specification was generated using Javadoc. The same is true for much of the documentation of 3rd-party libraries.
