Description _ gsporar 2007-08-21 21:02:10 UTC
Let's say there is a method x() in class Foo.  If Bar extends Foo and overrides method x() then the IDE does *not*
display the "Missing Javadoc" hint for method x() in class Bar (it will display it for the x() in Foo if it does not
have a Javadoc comment).

The default behavior in Eclipse Europa is the same, however, Europa has a nice option that is called "Check overriding
and implementing methods" so that the user can turn on this hint for overriding methods.

Filing as a P4 for now - if I hear from others that this would be interesting to them I will boost it to P3.
