According to the XDoclet site, version 2 is a complete rewrite and breaks
the current version. Is there any point to using the current version or even
looking at XDoclet until version 2 is out?

Based on this page, I would say most people don't notice any differences.

You're right...XDoclet 2 is a complete rewrite and you are asking a valid question regarding the future of XDoclet.


XDoclet 2's core code is reasonably stable right now, but that doesn't mean it's usable just yet. With XDoclet 2, the core framework is separate from the plugins. So, while the core is reaching a stable point, the plugins are still in development. A lot of progress is being made on them, but it may still be awhile before they're usable and can replace all of what XDoclet 1.2 currently does.


Most people use XDoclet for the plugins/modules that it comes with, not the framework itself. If that describes you, then I recommend looking at XDoclet 1.2 now and not waiting for XDoclet 2 to get involved with XDoclet.


The differences between the two are huge if you're a plugin writer, but minimal if you're a plugin user. I'll try to outline those differences in a separate post later today.
