I'd like to see /** be an abbreviation for something like:
But what would be really nice is if the code that expands this abbreviation could also generate a correctly formatted JavaDoc comment (i.e. figure out what method I'm adding JavaDoc for and generate the correct javadoc comment for the arguments passed to the method).
Target milestone -> 3.3.1.
Set target milestone to TBD
If you need a multiline comment, see issue 23571, if you
need to create a javadoc comment why don't you use the
"tools -> correct javadoc", seems to be doing what you're
asking for... if that's the case, maybe you can close the
issue, if it's the former mark as a duplicate of 23571... if not,
well, maybe I misunderstood your problem :-)
Changed subcomponent to documentation.
Are you sure the documentation subcomponent is correct here? Maybe the Editor team uses
it differently, but traditionally we've used the documentation subcomponent to indicate a bug
in the javadoc of a module's API, not the editor's support for javadoc.
You could also automatically add @param @return .. tags. This would be
way faster than using the auto completion dialogue box each time i
create a new method and thus would definately improve usability.
I've seen that jDeveloper suppports that, I'm not certain with Eclipse...
I think we should finally implement this for promoF.
Once implemented we should IMHO change the behavior of the Enter
pressed at the end of the line inside Javadoc comment - currently it
inserts '<indent>*' i.e.
* typed text
as the user may want to type '/' to end the comment. After
implementation of this enhancement we should start adding an extra
space after '*' i.e.
* typed text
as the closing '*/' was inserted automatically.
Mila, I completely agree, this is how other IDEs have it, let's do it
