If I do not write any javadoc at all on an overriding method - checkstyle won't bug me about it.
However, if i write a javadoc with only explaining the difference between the overriding method and the original one in the base class, with a @see tag for linking to full javadoc, I don't want to have to write all the @param, @return and @throw tags again (it will be copy-paste basically).
BTW, in eclipse's javadoc compiler configuration - you can avoid this - by unchecking "Check overriding and implementing methods"
I searched and didn't really find a way I can do this in checkstyle.
