What is JAVAdoc utility?

Javadoc parses comments in JAVA source files and produced HTML pages for the same. Below is the syntax for the same javadoc [ options ] [ packagenames ] [ sourcefiles ] [ @files ] Arguments can be in any order. Options Command-line options that is doctitle, windowtitle, header, bottom etc

Packagenames: –

A series of names of packages, separated by spaces, such as java.lang java.lang.reflect java.awt. You must separately specify each package you want to document. Javadoc uses -sourcepath to look for these package names. Javadoc does not recursively traverse subpackages.

sourcefiles :-

A series of source file names, separated by spaces, each of which can begin with a path and contain a wildcard such as asterisk (*). The path that precedes the source file name determines where javadoc will look for it. (Javadoc does not use -sourcepath to look for these source file names.)

@files: – One or more files that contain packagenames and sourcefiles in any order, one name per line.
