Comments in java Core Java

Comments in Java, like comments in most programming languages, do not show up in the executable program. Thus, you can add as many comments as needed without fear of bloating the code. Java has three ways of marking comments. The most common method is a //. You use this for a comment that will run from the // to the end of the line.System.out.println("We will not use 'Hello, World!'"); // is this too cute?

When longer comments are needed, you can mark each line with a //. Or you can use the /* and */ comment delimiters that let you block off a longer comment.

Finally, a third kind of comment can be used to generate documentation automatically. This comment uses a /** to start and a */ to end. For more on this type of comment and on automatic documentation generation.

CAUTION: /* */ comments do not nest in Java. That is, you cannot deactivate code simply by surrounding it with /* and */ because the code that you want to deactivate might itself contain a */ delimiter
