Indeed I have. I have fixed a small issue in the XDoclet template file in my 
local and I will commit the all thing, when I will be granted a commit

I understand.

However, I had a look to some IoC frameworks - PicoContainer, Spring, XWork2 
and Avalon-Merlin - in order to understand what should be done to avoid the 
JMX dependence and I gave a try to Avalon-Merlin. As a matter of fact, this 
IoC implementation uses "extensively" javadoc tags in order to declare 
amongst other thing the dependencies - our GeronimoMBeanEndPoint.

I do not know if this is a "good" approach; however this is the way 
Avalon-Merlin implements it.
