(Replying late, as I am behind in my e-mail.)

Yes, we (Forte/NetBeans) are having very similar problems as Cocoon and JSP.
What we did is we patched Javac to allow loading java files from other
sources than, and did some other changes, too. We are
distributing the patched version with the IDE (see file
/modules/ext/javac.jar in the IDE distribution). We tried to submit the
changes back to the Javac team (Bill M., I heard), but weren't successful.
So maybe we could try again now ? It looks like there is enough interest in
the community.

Do you know who we should contact now ?
