Hi,

Welcome to JavaRanch!

A bit of business: you may not have read our naming policy on the way in. It requires that you use a full, real (sounding) first and last name for your display name, separated by a space. Initials aren't enough. You can change your display name
here.
Thanks!

Thinking in Java's explanation of this should also be useful. Much shorter and all in one place compared to the sunsite link above.

I like Scott Ambler's Code & JavaDoc Standards.

In the five years since these were written, a lot of folks have come to think class, method, argument and field names should make the purpose of the code so obvious you don't need many hand-written comments. I still like to put a few lines on every class and package. package.html is often overlooked but it's a great place to tell future readers how and when to use a bunch of classes.

I vividly remember this happen in one of my previous projects:

I strove to have method names as self-descriptive as possible, and (myself or my team) documented only those methods whose name could not say it all. And then there was the external review team which in its findings insisted that all methods carry javadoc comments - kinda silly, and it took me some effort to convince them (maybe it would have helped if I'd had recourse to the above link then!)

Do you want to extract the javadoc from your own source code or from the Java API? If the former, I think others have given plenty of suggestions. While you can also use these suggestions for the Java API, it is unnecessary since these docs are publically available online and are also available for download. See the link in my signature for the online version.
