The book is a practical, code-intensive guide to using XDoclet to develop Java applications. The general approach to writing the book will be concise descriptions of key concepts that are backed up with lots of code examples and step-by-step directions to set up attributes and generate support files.The book will use a small example application similar to the Model 2, Pet Store example found in Sun's BluePrint (this is a similar approach to the one we took in "Java Tools for Extreme Programming). Then the book will focus on using the different XDoclet tasks to generate support files for EJB, Servlets, Struts, Ant, Filters, JSP Custom Tags, JDO and more. The book will also demonstrate how to build custom templates with Jelly, Velocity, and XDoclet templating engines.The companion Web site contains the code from the book (including the sample application that is built at the beginning of the book) and additional information about the software tools. It will also contain updated chapters on new or revised tools before they appear in a revision of the book.
