Subject Re: [ANTidote] Introspection implemented and updated ToDo's
Date Wed, 29 Jan 2003 01:56:02 GMT
Erik's XDoclet thing *does* bring a solution, in fact :)

The code calls the appropriate method in EnumeratedAttribute classes to 
get the list of allowed values and then puts them in the XML 
descriptor, currently as a comma-separated list with quotes around each 
value, but more ideally would be sub-elements that lists them 
individually to avoid tools having to parse further.  My original 
purpose was documentation, not tools, so there will be refinements like 
this needed.

Check out build/gen/utility/echo.xml, and the briefType on the 'level' 
attribute element (boy does that sound confusing!) [this after running 
the build from the proposal/xdocs directory].
