Subject [jira] (JXR-96) [PATCH] JXR Comment handling has several shortcomings

------------------------------

             Summary: [PATCH] JXR Comment handling has several shortcomings
                 Key: JXR-96
                 URL: https://jira.codehaus.org/browse/JXR-96
             Project: Maven JXR
          Issue Type: Bug
    Affects Versions: 2.3, 2.4
            Reporter: Matt Benson
         Attachments: JXR-96.patch.txt

I have identified the following issues:
 * a // comment does not properly mask a subsequent /* on the same line.
 * explicitly tries not to terminate comments if */ is embedded in a string, but compilers
don't behave this way.
 * does not handle /**/ construct properly: recognized as javadoc but not terminated, while
it is better interpreted as /*[empty]*/.

I have addressed these issues + JXR-58 by reworking the comment handling code.  Formerly the
filters were applied { multiline, inline }; my version of the code uses { ongoing-multiline,
inline, begin-multiline } specifically to address the first of the issues noted above.  I
was unable to find any exhaustive tests for this code; please guide me if there is any further
testing I can provide.  I have collapsed the duplicate code in these regions as much as possible,
and since this project is on maven-parent v21 I believe I was justified in replacing the StringBuffers
in affected areas with StringBuilders (obviously the whole file might benefit minutely from
this treatment).
