Description carcassi 2002-06-06 23:12:46 UTC
When you to create a bean property with the getter
and setter the generated comment ("Getter for property 
xxx") IMHO is a bad example of documentation. :-)

If you really want to make it generate the comment, I 
really think the user should be asked for a description 
for the property. Something like two extra field at the 
end of the bean property dialog: "description", that is 
used for the first line of the getter and setter (ex. "the 
text displayed in title"), and "constraints", that is used 
for the comment of the parameter for the setter
(ex. "must be a non-null String").

Just a thought, I am sure there are even better 
solutions... but the "Getter for property xxx" is awful! :-
