GWT 1.5 has been out for a while, but I haven’t had a chance to work with it until now. One of the first things I ran into was that my XDoclet module for GWT is broken – XDoclet simply cannot run with Java 5 annotations and generics.
GWT 1.5 hasn’t changed the way you do remote services, you still have to write an implementation and two interfaces, and you still have to maintain a module.gwt.xml. So, the code generation is still useful, and I decided to write an APT-based generator instead.
The generator is now finished (based on apt-jelly) and available for download. It works more or less like the old XDoclet module, only annotations are now real annotations, not JavaDoc annotations.
Download and usage can be found at the project site. The generator has not been used extensively yet, so there might be some bugs – please contact me if you have any problems with it, or if you have any suggestions for improvements.
