Hi,

 

I think there might be a bit of confusion – xdoclet isn’t really so much for documentation generation as it is a general code generation tool.  Personally, I find Document X! to be the best product out there for documentation – hands down.    Annotations (i.e. .NET attributes) are part of 1.5, the ability to read them at runtime.   XDoclet was handy because it would use a parser underneath to get at Javadoc comments (not annotation) but which served the same purpose before 1.5.  It then exposes the annotation information into a templating engine.

 

All that said, I don’t know of a specific code generator for .NET directly geared sucking out attribute metadata from .NET types and exposing them the template.  However, using the apis directly you can populate a dictionary or maybe even the attributes instances directly into the parsing engine via the API.  Popular ones are CodeSmith, MyGeneration, StringTemplate, NVelocity,..   there are others - http://csharp-source.net/open-source/template-engines

 

Cheers,

Mark

Hello,

Anyone knows .NET equivalent for Java's XDoclet? (http://xdoclet.sourceforge.net/xdoclet/index.html)

I know that XDoclet is now a part of JVM (I think since 1.5), I'm trying to find out if something like this exists in .NET

Thanks,
Dauren.
