Taglets Collection

The Taglets Collection is a set of general pupose taglets for use with the JavaDoc tool. It provides a standard set of new tags and lets you create new ones by configuration or using simple Java interfaces. Tested with J2SE 1.4, 1.5, and JavaSE 1.6. Go here to get them:


The Taglets Collection is a utility suite around the JavaDoc tool. It offers the following:

Preconfigured Tags
A suite of preconfigured extended tags for formatting the text of JavaDoc comments.
Examples include: @adm $Revision: 1.11 $ $Date: 2008/03/30 12:43:22 $ for automated inclusion of formatted repository keywords or {@table ...} for simple tabular.

Built-in Generator Tags
Support for well-known generator tags like e.g. for Hibernate, XDoclet or EMF tags.
Examples include: @ejb.bean, @web.servlet, @hibernate.set, @axis.service or even @model.

Custom Tags
A set of easy to configure taglets that allow pattern-based definition of custom JavaDoc tags.
Examples include: Taglets that perform ANT like parameter substitution ( ${my.param}) or use Java regular expressions to transform tag text.

Simple Taglet API
It also provides an interface similar to the standard Taglet API which aims to be more powerful while still simpler to use.
Highlights include: Independence of J2SE and JavaDoc version, access to the JavaDoc logging facility, access to the generated documentation root and a shutdown hook.
