Hello! How do you guys interpret this requirement: "...and javadoc style comments must be used for each element of the public interface of each class". Do I always have to actually add a javadoc-comment to my public method, even if the method inherits a proper documentation (or part of it)from the interface it implements? Can Sun fail me automatically if all the public methods do not contain explicitly written javadoc-documentation, even if the corresponding Javadocs-page contains one?
Hi Welcome to JavaRanch. Please check your Personal Messages (here) - I have sent you a message about your displayed name. Personally I used the inheritance feature of JavaDoc to reduce my workload. I put an "//inherited from ...." comment above every method that only used inheritance to populate the javadoc, so someone reading the code would know why I did not have complete javadoc for that method (and would also know that the method had to meet the contract specified in the interface / super class). I got 100% for my documentation. Regards, Andrew
