Description brucechapman 2007-07-28 09:18:47 UTC
JSR-269 annotation processors can generate messages of various types, such as error messages which should be fed back to the user. See http://java.sun.com/javase/6/docs/api/javax/annotation/processing/Messager.html and http://java.sun.com/javase/6/docs/api/javax/tools/Diagnostic.Kind.html Currently these messages are not displayed in the editor. They are displayed in the output window when a build is performed, and there is a hyperlink from the associated line number to the editor, however it would be preferable if these errors were displayed in the editor like other errors from javac.

While I would like to see better support of AnnotationProcessors in NetBeans, I think this is more an enhancement than a defect.
