Subject Re: [GUMP@brutus]: Project ant-xdocs-proposal (in module ant) failed

You should consider using something besides XDoclet when starting 
fresh.  XDoclet2 has been gaining momentum.  And QDox and Doxygen may 
be worth looking into as well.  XDoclet is a bear and requires of 
resources to run.  XDoclet2 is supposedly much more streamlined.

Sorry I've been absent from xdocs for a long while - lately I've been 
blissfully simple - staying away from EJB/Struts projects that got me 
into XDoclet in the first place.  I'm quite happy with just <javac>, 
<junit>, and <jar> most of the time :)
