Annotations

This is a quick ping to see where JRuby is on Java 5 annotation support.
Charles posted about it nearly a year ago and I was just wondering where
that had gone.

Well the simple answer is “no support”, primarily because nothing in
JRuby actually produces “normal” Java-consumable classes. We use
annotations internally for binding Ruby methods, but until there’s a
“real” static Java type produced by JRuby’s compiler, there’s nothing to
attach annotations to.

Thanks Charles! I was looking at adding support for JRuby to Seam but
since
it is so heavily dependent on annotations this seems like a non-starter.

I’m hoping to build up the “compiler #2” that can produce real Java
classes very soon. It’s mostly a matter of resources :frowning:
