An extended doclet api placed into the new compiler will allow javah and javap
to be implemented as doclets, as well as perhaps other tools not yet thought of.

EVALUATION Part of the migration to new compiler. iris.garcia@eng 1999-11-11 This bug represents our general project of providing a generally useful programmatic API to the compiler. In addition to analysis and query functions similar to what is currently included in the doclet API, we also need better programmatic control of the traditional compiler functions. See 4164450. william.maddox@Eng 2000-01-11 We want to do this, but the doclet API may not be a good starting point. neal.gafter@Eng 2000-12-07 I'm closing this. We need to rewrite javap. We need to rewrite javah. But we don't necessarily have to do it by extending a public API. neal.gafter@Eng 2000-12-11
