Java 5.0 - Javadoc

Below lists modifications in lvg for Javadoc 5.0:

  • Deprecated

    A new annotation @Deprecated should be used in addition to the @deprecated tag for deprecating program elements. The Java Language Specification now requires compilers to issue warning when the @Deprecated annotation (but not necessarily the tag) is used. The @deprecated tag provided a place to describe what replaces the deprecated program element.

    Example:

    
    public class foo {
    ...
    
    /**
    *
    * ..
    *
    * @deprecated repalced by fooNewMethod()
    */
    @Deprecated public void fooMethod()
    {
    ...
    }
    ...
