Hi Rick,

That does seem to be the documented way[1] to write taglets.
According to Harmony's roadmap[2], they haven't implemented the
javadoc tool yet.

Do the taglets need to be compiled against the JDK 1.4 libraries?
Since they are only used by the build system, I think it should be OK
to compile them against the class libraries of Ant's default JDK (the
one JAVA_HOME points to). In that case, it should work as long as
JAVA_HOME points to a JDK that contains these packages.
