JewelCLI provides an API to parse command line arguments. It uses Java annotations to present a very simple but powerful interface. Options are defined using an annotated Java interface definition. This allow a declarative style which can be much clearer than the procedural style used by some other Java CLI libraries.

Release Notes: Support for inherited options. Many bugfixes.
Release Notes: Support was added for help/usage messages, unparsed arguments, and regular expression validation. Long arguments now use the "--" prefix, and "-" prefixed arguments are short options. Support was added for --option=value and multiple short option names (one option with many aliases). Primitive type support was fixed, including adding support for Character. Two new aliases were added: the "commandLineInterface" annotation, to hold application name, and the "unparsed" annotation, to mark the method which will return the additional unparsed options.
