TalkAbstract.Information javaDocTalk(TalkAbstract.Speaker speaker, java.util.ArrayList<TalkAbstract.Attendee> audience)
Eclipse Javadoc viewer includes a powerful HTML renderer
and viewer. This allows traditional
Javadoc comments to
include simple decorations such as Bold and Italics.
However with a little bit of creativity and work, more advanced javadoc
comments are possible. For example, external images can be embedded to
illustrate how methods work.
In this talk I will show approximately 10 different ways to create interactive, dynamic and generally interesting Javadoc comments; discuss the limitations of the HTML
browser; and invite the
Eclipse Community to come up with
more new ways to maximize Javadoc usage.
