Thanks for your comments. Yes, it took me a whole weekend, but I think
it's worth :-)

No, the Velocity does not have Ant tasks.

Well, I am not sure on this. I think it's OK that the velocity task is
distributed in either Ant or Velocity. But I wish this task to be
committed and released. I have been watching Velocity-dev ML
for a while, but there is still no release after velocity-1.3.1-rc2
(July 25, 2002), and proposed features seems to be neglected
after short discussions...

I just added this patch to Bugzilla, Ant's area.
Should I post this patch to Velocity-dev ML also? Opinions please > all.

As for XDoclet tags, I will look into it from now. Would you give me
a pointer of documentations I should read?
