Sadly not...

Oh, hold on, well... yes...most of the tags in Swing are component-tags 
(not all), some others are well known objects and they all behave like 
beans... so that's enough to get a pretty complete list of attributes.
You're then left to guess the introspection facilities (i.e. how to 
convert a string to a boolean... or... to a size).

The problem is known at least for jelly-swing: there should be a large 
part of documentation being done which should rely on API documentation. 
See the jira for Jelly...
