  Peeking Inside the Box: Attribute-Oriented Programming with Java 1.5, Part 2
Subject:   Did I miss the boat ( XDoclet functionality )?

Nice articles, I especially like the analogie to mechanical devices in the beginning of the first article.

Your introduction to JDK 1.5 (Tiger) annotation turned out to be a lot different than my preconceptions (possible false). I thought Tiger annotation functionality was going to be something similar to XDoclet: i.e. meta data useful for code generation. Your introduction shows Tiger annotation as a more run time capability similar to aspect-oriented technology.

Did I miss the boat here? Is the functionality of XDoclet not being assimilated into Java like I thought?

Inquiring minds want to know!
