Yes there is - its called Javadoc and its included in the bin directory of your JDK. Assuming your PATH is set up correctly, type "javadoc -help" from the command line and that should get you started.

i am locked:
my class is Car.java
public class Car {
/** name of the car */
String name ;
String model;
int price ;
/*
the constructor. to construct
*/
public Car() {
}

/**
function that return the Name as a String.to a String
*/
String getName() {
return name;
}
/**
function that return the Name as a int.
@param void
*/
int getPrice() {
return price;
}
}


when i tried to generate the javadoc
the javadoc didn't include the attributes
and the function, what is missing ??
Thanks

By default javadoc includes only public elements of a class. You need to set some compiler options to get more restricted elements to show up as well.
