What happened to XDoclet?

Hi,

What happened to Xdoclet?

I see the page on sourcefourge http://xdoclet.sourceforge.net/xdoclet/index.html has not been updated since May 2005.

And...home page of XDoclet2 http://xdoclet.codehaus.org/ appears to have had no release since 2005.

Is this a dead technology?

Cheers,

Simon

Well, XDoclet 1 continues to work fine (although it doesn't like the generics notation using angle brackets in Java 5 code).

I would guess that version 2 hasn't taken off because the usefulness of JavaDoc-style annotations is much diminished, now that real annotations are available. E.g., Hibernate and EJB (two of the common uses of XDoclet 1) now use annotations, making XDoclet unnecessary.
