Hi!

This might not be the right forum, but I figure that people here would
know...

I am in a project where we have used Tomcat 5.0.x and WebDoclet (XDoclet)
for web.xml and taglib deployment descriptors.

Now we have decided to upgrade to Tomcat 5.5 and JDK 1.5 (from 1.4) for
various reasons.

XDoclet haven't had a release lately and does not support, e.g. annotations.
Therefore, I am wondering if WebDoclet still is the tool to use for
deployment descriptors or if there is something new and better.
If there is not and WebDoclet is what people use are there then any known
limitations?

I want my solution to work with Ant and possibly Maven.

I don't think webtools currently has an alternative method for doing
generated the dd artifacts. Manually maintaining these items is an
unneeded chore, IMO.

XDoclet hasn't had a release in a long time, and XDoclet2 doesn't work
too well with Java 5 syntax. I've given up using XDoclet altogether, I'm
currently maintaining my web.xml "by hand".

HTH,
