1. Single-line comments

2. Multi-line comments

3. Documentation comments

Java Comments - The Coding Shala

Single-line and Multi-line comments are often used in programs. 

Single-Line Comments

Single-line comments are used to comment single in the program. Single-line comment starts from //.

Multi-Line Comments

Multi-line comments are used to comment more than one line at once. Using multi-line comments we can comment single line or a part of the program. Multi-line comments start with /* and end with */ and between this every line ignored by the compiler. 
public class CommentsExample{
    public static void main(String[] args){
        System.out.println("Single line comment here");
        //this is single line comment
        /* multi-line comment starts here
        int i = 0;  ignored by compiler 
        continue multi-line here
        end of multi-line comments */
        System.out.println("Hello there");

Single line comment here
Hello there
