It seems like annotations came around and then everyone involved in every XDoclet system just stopped working on them.
I've tried to rattle some cages on the xdoclet-devel list, from what I can see JBoss XDoclet Eclipse plugin ships with 1.2.3.
Is the version shipped the stock 1.2.3 version ? Or do you fixup your own JBoss module to be uptodate or do you maintain your own XDoclet source tree ?
its a stock version - we don't have our own jboss module.
