Subject Re: Click annotation

Hi George,

Thanks for your reply. The part which might look complicated is only the
configuration part. And that is because my implementation does not come with
Click distribution, if so then we could also avoid the configuration part.
Which means, we could start using it without any configuration. I hope
someday this will get integrated into Click.

And I agree with you, if the xml is dead simple, then its easier to use the
xml configuration. But if it starts to get more messy on xml, then I prefer
annotations, because they are less error pron. However, I believe this is
all about choice of individuals. I just thought to start doing something for
click, and since I am not a commiter, so i did that on google code.

And yes, I believe, I will start looking into issues on issue tracker soon,
and will try to contribute there.

I appreciate your response and giving your view. And I will appreciate more
if you can come up with some good suggestion to make the annotations better
and more helpful :)
