Hi Kevin, Standard rules apply ... if you think that the code is self explanitory, and can easily be understood by a junior programmer, then dont worry about comments. But if there is even a chance that a comment or two will make the code easier to understand, then add a comment. Moving away from your question, why have you marked your code block as transient? Regards, Andrew
Note that there's no need for javadoc comments here. That is, there's a rule that all public methods must have javadoc comments - but that doesn't apply to methods of an anonymous class, since an anonymous class will not appear in javadoc's generated HTML API at all. So forget about javadoc comments here. Non-javadoc comments may still be appropriate, as Andrew suggests.
