.SH "DESCRIPTION"
.LP
.LP
The tool \f2apt\fP, annotation processing tool, includes a set of new reflective APIs and supporting infrastructure to process program annotations. The \f2apt\fP reflective APIs provide a build\-time, source\-based, read\-only view of program structure. These reflective APIs are designed to cleanly model the Java(TM) programming language's type system after the addition of generics. First, \f2apt\fP runs annotation processors that can produce new source code and other files. Next, \f2apt\fP can cause compilation of both original and generated source files, easing development. The reflective APIs and other APIs used to interact with the tool are subpackages of \f2com.sun.mirror\fP.

This new infrastructure relies on the language model and annotation\-processing APIs that are now part of the Java Platform. It is recommended that new annotation processor development be based on the new APIs and the \f2javac\fP tool.

.SH "OPTIONS"
.LP
.SS 
apt specific options
.LP
.TP 3
\-s dir 
Specify the directory root under which processor\-generated source files will be placed; files are placed in subdirectories based on package namespace. 
.TP 3
\-nocompile 
Do not compile source files to class files. 
.TP 3
\-print 
Print out textual representation of specified types; perform no annotation processing or compilation. 
.TP 3
\-A[key[=val]] 
Options to pass to annotation processors \-\- these are not interpreted by \f2apt\fP directly, but are made available for use by individual processors 
.TP 3
\-factorypath path 
Specify where to find annotation processor factories; if this option is used, the classpath is \f2not\fP searched for factories. 
.TP 3
\-factory classname 
Name of annotation processor factory to use; bypasses default discovery process 
.LP
.SS 
Options shared with javac
.LP
.TP 3
\-d dir 
Specify where to place processor and javac generated class files 
.TP 3
\-cp path or \-classpath
path 
Specify where to find user class files and annotation processor factories. If \f2\-factorypath\fP is given, the classpath is not searched for factories.

Consult the javac(1) man page for information on \f2javac\fP options.
.LP
.SH "NOTES"
.LP
.LP
The functionality of \f2apt\fP has been subsumed by the standard annotation\-processing infrastructure now offered by \f2javac\fP. Support for \f2apt\fP and its associated APIs may be discontinued in some future JDK release.
