javadoc: how to supress a warning for an unused member?


I have three related static final String members in a class and then in another member of the class I select which of the three I want to use... then the other two get an "Unused member" warning from java. Is there a way with javadoc tags to tell the compiler to avoid this warning?

Thanks in advance.

I'm not a Java programmer, but perhaps this will help:
Since Java 5.0, you can disable compilation warnings relative to a subset of a compilation unit using the java.lang.SuppressWarning annotation.

 @SuppressWarning("unused") public void foo() {
  String s;


java, javadoc, warning
