well, the 'big project' chapter did take about 10 weeks all in; it is 
probably so big that it should split into two.

But I'm backing off from any XDoclet coverage because
  -XDoclet 1.2.x doesnt work on java1.5
  -XDoclet 2.0 isnt there yet
  -Java 5 annotations threaten the value of the tool

However, there aint java5 annotations for doing taglibs, servlet 
declarations, or even (I believe) hibernate bindings. All we get are 
stuff to do with EJB3 (sigh) and JAX-RPC 2.0 bindings of methods to SOAP 
calls (IMO, RPC is the wrong metaphor for distributed computing over 
SOAP). Which is what you get when you have JCP working groups full of 
EJB and WS vendors.

Who is doing the java5 annotations for taglibs, servlets &c? Maybe there 
is something in tomcat-land. Otherwise I Dont know what to say on that
