Its more a question of just reading enough to get the job done.
In a complex application you want to concentrate on the relevant
parts and not get bogged down by the rest. A little JavaDoc in
the right places always helps, but sometime the problem is not
with the will to read, but the lack of any documentation to be
able to read.
