> The current WSM annotation processor is obviously JDK 5.0 APT based.  In its implementation,
though, it uses a cross between reflection and Mirror to do annotation processing.  The result
is that with this style project:
>   src/
>     Service.java
>     Account.java
> where the WSM annotated web service "Service.java" imports the "Account" class, the .class
file must exist on disk in order for the annotations to be processed.  
> The result is that WSM projects need to be structured as:
>   src/
>     Account.java
>   src-ws/
>     Service.java
> so that the src/ directory can be built before src-ws/ to ensure that the .class files
for required types are available before annotation processing.
> One of the goals of Mirror is to allow annotations in source files to be processed so
that the .class files need not exist.  A nice improvement to the WSM annotation processor
would be to remove the dependence on reflection and replace it with Mirror-only annotation
processing.
> We should address this at some point after the next Beehive release...
