Javadocs allow you to generate HTML documentation from your source files. The online API documentation is the result of running a javadoc on the source code of a standard Java library, much like this HTML page here.
To declare a comment as a Javadoc, simply use one of the following notations:
/** Javadoc Comments */ /** Javadoc Comments */ /** * * Javadoc Comments * */
Anything that goes within these comments are valid for Javadoc. To attach the comments to our code, we place them directly before classes, constructors fields, interfaces and methods.

Now that we know the fundamentals of declaring a javadoc and the tags that go with, let's learn how to apply them to a typical class.
