Conditional compilation does not combine well with javadoc

Posted by info on December 8th, 2009

It took me a while to debug errors in javascript and found out that I had two external javascript files and in one javascript file the programmer used /*@cc_on!@*/ notation ( conditional compilation that works in IE). and in the other file the programmer used javadoc notation @param inside the comments. When the file with javadoc notation is loaded before the one with conditional compilation inside comments it works fine. But when I switch the loading sequence I get javascript errors.. So removing the comments or using a different loading sequence helped with solving the error.
