Class BlockComment


  • public final class BlockComment
    extends Comment
    Block comment AST node type.

    Block comments (also called "traditional" comments in JLS 3.7) begin with "/*", may contain line breaks, and must end with "*/". Following the definition in the JLS (first edition but not second edition), block comment normally exclude comments that begin with "/*#42;", which are instead classified as doc comments (Javadoc).

    Note that this node type is a comment placeholder, and is only useful for recording the source range where a comment was found in a source string. It is not useful for creating comments.
