Subject AW: [PATCH] XDoclet / JMXDoclet based MBean interface generation added to core module
Date Mon, 18 Aug 2003 07:27:26 GMT
Hello James, hello all,

we are currently not quite sure what the actual source of the MBeans is
going to be (doclet tags or a XML description file).

If a XML based description is needed it could also be created based on
doclet tags as for example with xdoclet/elbaxmbean. Didn't David mention
somthing like that in a previous posting, too? Besides if we recall
correctly JDK1.5 will most likely include a metadata facility which is more
like the doclet based approach rather than having external XML files for
meta description.

Best regards,

Kristian Kohler and Steffen Schluff

Or we could use doclet tags instead of XML? The benefit of doclet tags
is refactoring tools tend to keep them with the methods when you rename
& refactor etc.
