Java in a Nutshell

Previous Chapter 2
How Java Differs from C


Java supports three types of comments:

Since C-style comments do not nest, it is a good idea to use C++-style // comments for most of your short comments within method bodies. This allows you to use /* */ comments to comment out large blocks of code when you need to do that during development. This is especially important because, as you will see, Java does not support a preprocessor that allows you to use #if 0 to comment out a block.
