SpringDoclet is a Javadoc doclet that generates documentation on Spring Framwork artifacts in a project. The detection of Spring artifacts is based on the presence of Spring annotations on Java classes and methods.

SpringDoclet currently detects and documents the following types of Spring artifacts:

SpringDoclet writes its output in HTML format into a file named spring-summary.html. The location of the file is determined by the Javadoc "-d" option, with the same defaulting rules as the standard doclet.
