Java comment examples

Question: How do I create a comment in Java?

Answer: There are two ways to create Java comments, and both are shown in the example code below:

// this is a one-line comment

/**
 * this is also
 * a comment, but it can span multiple
 * lines.
 */

The // syntax makes everything after it on the current line a Java comment, and the /** ... */ syntax lets you create multi-line Java comments.
