Plugin Documentation

I'm interested in writing a plug in to build EJB deployment descriptors for specific application servers, specifically WebLogic and JBOSS. However, I have not been able to find any documentation on how to do this. Do these docs exist and where could I find them.

Thanks in advance,

jeff

There isn't very much documentation. There is JavaDoc for the API in your
IDEA folder at "doc/openapi/javadoc". However, hardly any of the methods are
documented. I've written a few plugins and I had to download other plugins
and start from there. Also, http://www.intellij.org has some helpful hints.
But, mostly, it's a lot of guessing and intuiting.

I found the JavaDoc and the intellij.org stuff, its very thin. I think IDEA is a great product and am thrilled that the folks at JetBrains are allowing plug ins, however, I'm unsure how they play to support a developer community without providing documentation. Hopefully, it'll come out when the product is officially released. Developing by guessing and reverse engineering seems like a bad idea (no pun intended) to me.

Why not just use the existing Ant plugin and use XDoclet? That's one powerfull combination.

That would not allow for the use of all the nifty features around EJB development that are built into Idea.
