Javadoc is a documentation generator tool produced by Sun
Microsystems. This software generates API documentation in
HTML format from Java source code.
The "doc comments" format used by Javadoc is the standard
method for documenting Java classes. It integrates with programming
tools. For example, NetBeans
can automatically generate Javadoc HTML. Many file editors helps coders
produce Javadoc source and
will use the Javadoc info as internal references for the programmer.
Javadoc also provides an API for creating doclets and taglets,
which allows you to analyze the structure of a Java application.
