GWT Exporter now generates Javascript documentation

I added a rough implementation of a Javadoc Doclet (my first!) to the exporter trunk. It is an extension of the Standard Doclet, so it not only generates Javadoc for your GWT classes, but automatically emits a file called "jsdoc.html" that includes documentation for every @Export in your source base. This allows you to automatically produce documentation for Javascript programmers from GWT source. I use the Maven Javadoc Plugin to execute this, but you can use ant tasks or the command line as well.

It's quite ugly at the moment, no CSS stylesheet, but I'm working on a basic one. I'm happing to take any CSS donations from those who want to check out the trunk and play with it.

Code project is :

Screencast of Timescope, the commercial version of Chronoscope

Hi Folks,
I've uploaded a screencast of Timescope, which is the commercial version of Chronoscope, to Vimeo. This is a sneak peak at some of the features in the upcoming release of Timescope, as well as Chronoscope 1.0. The chief differences between Timescope and Chronoscope, are a more accurate multiresolution algorithm that preserves data better when zooming out, new marker and renderer types (CandleStick charts for example), new marker types like Image, Axis, and Callout markers, iPhone support, a native Android version, as well as a Chart Server.

The screencast is at:, I'd embed it here, but it has to be watched in HD in order to see what's going on.
