I would hope by this point in the course that you worked out how to add code comments in Java… I’m sure you have. For those that haven’t, it’s simply //.
//This is a code comment
That is the very basic, we also have a few more options available to us
* This is a class to explain code comments
public class N_CodeComments
//So in IntelliJ if you type /** and press <enter> you'll get this
* This is a method to explain code comments
* @param a this is the person's Name
* @param b this is the person's Age
//IntelliJ will automatically create you some comments to fill in.
//It knows your method has some parameters, so it includes them so you can add some context
public void CodeCommentMethod(String a, int b)
// int c = 1; //If you press Ctrl+/ it will comment the line out/in
Using code comments is something that most developers frown upon. Their argument is that the code should be self-explanatory. Class, Methods and Variables should all be well named, so that’s immediately clear what they are for, or what they do. I can understand that stance. But you are new to Java, so add as many comments and you need, and keep adding them until you are comfortable enough not to.
