Subject [jira] (MPLUGIN-247) Allow getting mojo/parameter description/since/deprecated from annotations
Date Sun, 07 Jul 2013 14:32:05 GMT
Alex Hvostov created MPLUGIN-247:
------------------------------------

             Summary: Allow getting mojo/parameter description/since/deprecated from annotations
                 Key: MPLUGIN-247
                 URL: https://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MPLUGIN-247
             Project: Maven 2.x Plugin Tools
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: maven-plugin-annotations
    Affects Versions: 3.2
            Reporter: Alex Hvostov
            Priority: Minor
         Attachments: extra-annotations.diff

The attached patch adds annotations {{@Description}}, {{@Since}}, and {{@DeprecatedBecause}},
which can be used instead of Javadoc comments for describing a Mojo and its parameters.

My use-case for this feature is writing Maven plugins in Scala. This language supports annotations,
but a Java parser will obviously not be able to extract description/since/deprecated information
from Scala source files. (There is another {{plugin-tools}} implementation specifically for
writing Scala plugins, which has its own set of annotations, but it is buggy, incomplete,
and not under active development.)
