Join Todd Perkins for an in-depth discussion in this video Generating Javadocs, part of Eclipse Essential Training.
- Eclipse has a built-in feature…to generate documentation for you.…Let's look at how that works.…I'm going to create a New Java Project,…that I'll call JavaDoc,…and I'll click Finish.…Now I'm going to add a New Class to my project,…so I'll right click JavaDoc, and select New Class.…I'll Name the Class,…JavaDocExample.…And then I'm going to add all the method stubs,…and I'm going to click Generate comments this time.…
Generate comments actually generates…a special type of comment,…that's made for creating documentation.…So let's click Finish,…and in here I see some special comments.…So there's a / and an *,…which is the start of a multi-line comment,…but there's also a second *,…and that denotes, along with an * on each line…until the comment ends,…a place for you to write documentation.…For example, we have an @author callout.…
So I can write my name as the author.…We can also do an @version callout.…As I type the @ symbol, you'll also notice…that there's code hinting for that.…So we can write special tags in our code,…
