What is the difference between multi-line comment /* */ and documentation comment /** */ in Java?

/* this is a multi-line comment */ /** this is an important multi-line comment */

Comments like /** .. */ are for javadoc tool (included in Java installation) which automatic generate html documentation for your codes with this comments as headers for next class or methods. like https://pasteboard.co/IsBtgbe.png or https://docs.oracle.com/en/java/javase/12/docs/api/java.base/java/lang/String.html

Use // text when you want to commenta single line of code. Use /* text */when you want to comment multiple lines of code. Use /** documentation */ when you would want to add some info about the program that can be used for automatic generation of program documentation.

multi-line is to use multiple lines. And documentation comment is to attach some file by the comment.
