I was never a big fan of WADL, but WADL seems to be relied on for auto
generation of documents.

I liked the doclet approach because it didn't create a compilation
dependency which means you could write JAX-RS 1.1 compatible code and
not worry about the compilation dependency if you were building against
older versions of JAX-RS.
