The Jikes RVM source code currently contains many duplicated comments. This decreases both maintainablity and readability of the soure code. We should do the following:
- change the source level in the build to Java 6 (@Override for implementations of interface methods was added in Java 6 and might not be supported in all Java 5 compilers)
- add missing @Override annotations
- remove duplicate and near duplicate comments
See this thread for the original discussion.
