Hi ,
I happened to read the specific article which you had poiunted out to eric lidell.I had a similar doubt in deprecation.Does the java compiler parse the javadoc comments tags also.
To deprecate a method ,in its corresponding javadoc comment we have to include @deprecated .
So this means the javac compiler has to parse the javadoc comments also.
What other tags does it compile ?
