XDoclet for JDK 5

From the xdoclet-user mailing list:

I just uploaded a snapshot of xjavadoc that (among other fixes) provides support for Java 5, as of XJD-41. Many thanks go to Anton Adamansky for his work on this issue.

You should be able to just replace the xjavadoc-1.1.jar from a Xdoclet binary release with this snapshot and use jdk1.5 features with Xdoclet.

Have fun,

Let us know if you find any issues.

Note that you need xdoclet 1.2.2 (final) for this to work, anything older (1.2.1, snapshots etc) won't work. This goes for the Maven plugin as well. /Peter

I think with java 5 annotations Xdoclet no needed in soon. Example even today annotations project for hibernate is more better then xdoclet and I think more clearly.

Thanks for finding that. I dropped it in and now I can use 1.5 generics without xdoclet complaining.

Hi, I am using XDoclet 1.1.2 and JDK 1.3. I am upgrading to JDK 1.5. When i compile the source code XDoclet is not creating setX(setter)methods in Data object for non primitive types(It can able to generate for getter methods). It is working well for primitives. Any body faced the same problem. Hoping for a good solution. Thanks in advance
