Documentation Comments (scjd)

Hi guys, I am little confused about how much javadoc style comment should we use. I have the following statements in my instructions
1. "javadoc style comments must be used for each element of the public interface of each class"
2. "You must provide HTML/Javadoc documentation for all classes, whether supplied, modified, or new"

Does that mean we can spare the non-public api from javadoc commenting?

I would javadoc all your methods, even the private ones.
