Is there a way to automatically add javadoc source code to your java files in eclipse? I'm looking for something that when you select your project and selects generate then javadoc is added to all methods, contructors, classs etc. and what can be added automatically is added automatically. Is such a tool available for eclipse?

    better to use templates to add the javadoc as you add a new method

    But that is about generating after writing all the javadoc source. I agree ought to have used the templates when adding. But isnt there a way to just add for the entire application now that I have created hte methods, constructors and so on? Am I wrong when I say Netbeans is able to do that? Its just a drag to write it all, so it would be nice to be able to automate as much as the process as possible.
