Subject Custom javadoc tags
Date Tue, 18 Jan 2005 12:16:49 GMT

I'm using the tasklist plugin to generate a list of To Dos from @todo 
tags in the code. The result is as expected. Javadoc (1.5), though, 
does not cooperate. I've configured the custom tag in like this:

tag1.description=To Do:

In the Javadoc Report I get the following warning

  Note: Custom tags that could override future standard tags:  @todo. To 
avoid potential overrides, use at least one period character (.) in 
custom tag names.

and the text from the @todo does not appear in the generated output.

Now, I really like the @todo tag and rather not change it to something 
else. I'd like it even more if Sun supported this tag in the future and 
I can (ideally) keep my javadoc commments as they are. What I don't 
understand is why javadoc generates no output for the tag. Any ideas?
