Javadoc (originally cased as JavaDoc )  is a documentation generator created by Sun Microsystems for the Java language (now owned by Oracle Corporation ) for generating API documentation in HTML format from Java source code. The HTML format is used to add the convenience of being able to hyperlink related documents together. 
You can run the Javadoc tool on entire packages , individual source files , or both . When documenting entire packages, you can either use -subpackages for traversing recursively down from a top-level directory, or pass in an explicit list of package names. When documenting individual source files, you pass in a list of source ( .java ) filenames. Examples are given at the end of this document. How Javadoc processes source files is covered next.
This document describes the style guide, tag and image conventions we use in documentation comments for Java programs written at Java Software, Oracle. It does not rehash related material covered elsewhere:
