Subject Support for JSR 199: Java Compiler API
Date Mon, 09 Jul 2007 12:34:01 GMT

Adding support for a generic Tool task would be a valuable addition.  This
could leverage existing machinery already developed as a part of the Ant
codebase.  The Javac tool is a good example of a specialized tool and should
be considered as an core part of the Ant toolkit especially taking into
consideration its support for pluggable annotation processors.

Cheers, Steve.
