rDoc : Java Glossary


A documentation-generating scheme similar to Javadoc used for Ruby. The rDoc processor scans for specially formatted comments in the source code and generates HTML (Hypertext Markup Language). Unlike Javadoc, rDoc has no formal mechanism to document the type or meaning of individual method parameters. The parameter name is supposed to suffice.
