javadoc, jxr and jcr

As OpenWFE now uses Maven for its build needs, I dropped Doxygen for now and I’m using Jxr to generate a cross-referenced view of OpenWFE source.

I’ll miss doxygen diagrams, but I’m pretty sure someone will come up with a Doxygen Maven plugin soon.

Nicolas Modrzyk joined the OpenWFE developer team. He’s working on openwfe-jcr, a set of classes for persisting vanilla beans and OpenWFE artefacts within Java Content Repositories (JCR).

The JCR API is mainly implemented by Jackrabbit, an apache open source project. It’s used behind Magnolia, our friend project.

The hierarchical nature of the JCR makes it a very natural persistence target for OpenWFE.

  1. Hi John,

    re: diagrams, you might check ydoc out (don’t they have a specific licensing option for open source projects?), or UmlGraph. I used this before as a specific doclet, plugged in the maven-javadoc-plugin, as explained here:
    and eventhough the graphs didn’t render super nicely (especially on my old linux box w/ some font issues), it was still quite nice to have.
