While I messed with netbeans using java language I didn't understand what this command was for
/** , I went back and something about Javadoc appeared, I didn't quite understand what it meant could someone explain to me?
To insert comments in the source code, in Java, you can use one of two ways:
// Comentário em uma única linha /* Comentário que se divide em várias linhas */
When writing form comments (note the two asterisks in the first line)
/** * */
Comments can be interpreted by a tool – called Javadoc – which generates documentation based on the source code using, in addition to the comments between
/** */ , other special annotations, such as
@date , which provide, respectively, information of authorship and the creation date of the file.
The wikipedia article provides a good understanding of Javadoc.
The Java API is an example of documentation generated using the tool.
