Subject Anomalous
Date Mon, 22 Apr 2013 18:05:29 GMT
I am very sorry to see all my "" files being stamped with
the "anomalous" statement from Ant and have javac
generate a lot of "Creating empty .../package-info.class".

While not being in a OSGi environment and not having annotations on
packages, I do not at all find it "anomalous" to have my JavaDoc
documentation written carefully in files.

I have read the Ant manual under javac, last section. What is the rationale
behind forcing the generation of "empty" package-info.class files?

When my javac task generates pages of output about
package-info.class-creation and for no apparent reason, I get really
scared. Contrary to most programmers, I actually care to write JavaDoc and
at the vary least state the intended purpose and responsibility of packages.

To me, the current state of does not appear to
be sound at all. Is it sound?

Someone care to comment upon the subject?
