Javadoc

Definition - What does Javadoc mean?

Javadoc is a documentation tool for the Java programming language. The document it creates from the Java sources is in HTML format and describes the application programming interface.

Techopedia explains Javadoc

Javadoc uses the delimiters "/**" and "*/" to open and close comments, respectively. Various tags and parameters are used for different types of documentation such as for describing an author ("@author"), the version of a class or interface ("@version"), a method parameter ("@param"), the return value ("@return"), a link to other documentation ("@see"), etc. Javadoc generates output from four different types of source files, namely, source code files, package comment files, overview comment files and miscellaneous unprocessed files.
