I was just browsing some code written by a colleague and noticed a quick javadoc trick. In most modern IDEs, you are left witha warning if you do not comment javadoc comments correctly, with all the @params and @throws.
I'm of the opinion this is a good thing, really. But sometimes any comment is better than none, and describing every @param seems redundant. So, what to do? Well, just do a little sidestep around the IDE parser and use /*+ as your comment opener. Viola!
