Re: Generate JavaScript documentation from JsInterop annotated Java sources

I wrote an annotation processor which generates EcmaScript 6 code. The JavaDoc comments are enriched with information taken from custom annotations (where necessary), Finally I use ESDoc [1] to generate the final documentation. If anyone is interested the code can be at [2].

I suppose one could write an annotation processor that could generate a Closure externs files (the reverse of the jsinterop-generator), copying the javadoc (though probably transforming it a bit, to turn it into jsdoc with type information) around, so a jsdoc tool could be used afterwards (or directly generating documentation from the annotations). Or maybe rather a javadoc doclet?

With J2Cl, I suppose (hope!) the javadoc could be carried out to the generated ES6, so that would be a non-issue.

I'm currently exporting a JavaScript API of my GWT application using JsInterop. I'm looking for a way to document the JavaScript API. ATM this is all done by hand. But it would be great if I could reuse the JavaDoc of my annotated classes and methods to generate JavaScript documentation. I know there are several JavaScript doc tools out there [1], [2]. But they all need JavaScript files as input. 

I'm wondering if anybody has a similar requirement and found a solution. All kind of suggestions, tips and ideas are welcome!
