    Default javadoc question

    Is it possible to generate a javadoc from .class files?

    Comments are removed from .class files and Javadoc uses Java comments to create the docs. So I don't see how you could get Javadoc from the .class files.

    Although it may not be possible to get JavaDoc from .class files, in the BlueJ IDE, it keeps the comments in another file so that you can generate JavaDoc.

    .ctxt files

    Also, if you only have a .class file that was not compiled with with BlueJ, you may be able to get the Java source code and the disassembled bytecode

    programs that open .class files (such as JD-GUI)

    After six years they probably figured it out by now.
