You may want to have a look at If you are doing fairly 
straight transforms (like the stuff you do with antdocs proposal) then it is 
a much nicer toolkit to work with and a fair bit faster too.

After having XDoclet break my code for the umpteenth time, I decided to give 
it a go. I was skeptical at first (XDoclet rocks) but actually playing with 
it led me to like QDox more in my use cases (basically extracting metadata 
from classes and putting xml files). 

Anyways it is fairly nice and much easier to support than xdoclet. However if 
you are doing code generation XDoclet is probably still the one to use unless 
you want to try vdoclet (which apparently uses qdox + velocity for code 
generation). I haven't used vdoclet though ...

The phrase "computer literate user" really means the person 
has been hurt so many times that the scar tissue is thick 
enough so he no longer feels the pain.
