[URLyBird] Javadoc comments

My specification says:
"... javadoc style comments must be used for each element of the public interface of each class."
So I should have javadoc comments for public methods (and variables if any).
But should I write javadocs for protected methods and variables?

I provide Javadoc comments for everything except some datamembers (mostly private ones).
The generated Javadoc I limit to public only to save a bit of space.
I agree. Here's the link:
subject: [URLyBird] Javadoc comments
A old question: shall we write comment for the private methods and variables?
Javadoc - only public members?
Disallowed to use private inner classes?
B&S: What types do you comment with javadoc?
