Comments in Groovy

Comments are used to document your code. Comments in Groovy can be single line or multiline.

//

Single line comments are identified by using the // at any position in the line. An example is shown below −

class Example {
   static void main(String[] args) {
      // Using a simple println statement to print output to the console
      println('Hello World');
   }
}

/* */

Multiline comments are identified with /* in the beginning and */ to identify the end of the multiline comment.

class Example {
   static void main(String[] args) {
      /* This program is the first program
      This program shows how to display hello world */
      println('Hello World');
   }
}
