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!
