Subject ANN: Java+ Precompiler as an Ant Task
Date Tue, 07 Jan 2003 22:41:43 GMT
I hope this is the right protocol for getting Ant tools added to the 
external resources website. Please let me know if not.

This is to announce Release 1.1 of the Java+ Precompiler with Ant, 
Make and Graphical interfaces. The Ant interface is new to this 
release. Here's the cover blurb from the website:

Java+ is an open source Java preprocessorthat adds these features to 
any Java compiler:

     * Multi-line strings with executable inclusions like Perl and 
Ruby. It eliminates the need for JSP or ASP and their need for Java 
compilers on deployment servers (a security concern) while adding no 
overhead in either space or time.

     * Optionally supports localization by segregating Java+ strings 
into ResourceBundle files with invarient keys based on the hash code 
of the strings's value. This is handled automatically and 
transparently; no intervention is required.

     * Fast. Negligible impact on build times. By default, skips 
inputs whose outputs are up to date to avoid triggering 

     * Pure Java code, portable to any platform, with graphical, shell 
and ant interfaces.

     * Simple, general, recursive, digraph-driven string syntax. 
Digraph characters are user-selectable.

     * Free software, BSD open source license
