How to link to Constructor from JavaDoc

5 years ago by in How To Tagged: , ,

Say we have the following class and we would like to refer to a specific constructor from within the JavaDoc.

public class MyClass {
  public MyClass(){}
  public MyClass(String param1){}
  public MyClass(int param1){}

We can use one of the following

  • @see #MyClass(String)
  • {@link #MyClass(String)}

Both examples will create a link that points to the second constructor that takes a String as its argument.
