Autogenerating Javadoc skeleton comment blocks

I think I may have committed a deadly sin. I didn't javadoc-comment my code as I wrote it.

Now I'm sitting on close to 50 undocumented files (though not all of them are "public" and require javadoc). I am wondering if there is any software which will step through my source code and let me choose some methods to prepend with javadoc-style comments, and then write out a little skeleton comment, perhaps just with "write description here" placeholders for the method and any applicable @param and @return attributes.

Does this exist or am I going to have to write it myself/do it all by hand?

Thanks,
benjamin

Development with IDE's like ECLIPSE, WSAD or RAD will make the life very easier. These tools got settings to generate the javadoc automatically and one can configure.
