Subject Annotation based library for equals,toString etc
Date Tue, 06 Jan 2009 13:41:46 GMT
Hello reader,

I would like to start a new project (in the sandbox?) for annotation
based implementation of methods like equals.
The idea is to annotate a class like this:

class Test {
    private int a;

and compare 2 instances of this class using
AutomaticEquals.equals(test1, test2).
Which would work just like
Additional candidates for annotation based implementations could be
toString() and compare() and clone().

So here are my questions:
- is it OK to start a project like this here or should I start one for
example on and move the code later to
- if yes, what would be my next steps?
