I'm still working on getting a stable first release of Nully, the plugin
that inspired the new @Nullable craze :)
However in the mean time I thought some of you might be interested in a paper
about the plugin. It's a technical paper in ACM standard format, but I think
it's pretty easy to read. If you're interested in how such a plugin would
be developed, you might like the paper.
I developed Nully as part of an Undergraduate Research Project at my college,
and the paper was part of what I had to hand in. It's my first technical
paper, so any feedback would be welcome.
The paper is available at https://nully.dev.java.net/files/documents/3412/14473/Nully.pdf
