Hi all,

why in some code I see this

/**
* @param args
*/

When and why it is used?

Thanks

That's known as Javadoc comments

Ideally, all the time. The link Joanne provided will probably explain the rest of the question.

Of course the example you showed is a really poor use of it. It should have a description of the parameter.
