Subject [jira] Created: (DOXIA-104) Support use of custom properties in XDOC files
Date Mon, 02 Apr 2007 06:07:20 GMT
Support use of custom properties in XDOC files

                 Key: DOXIA-104
             Project: doxia
          Issue Type: Task
    Affects Versions: 1.0-alpha-8
            Reporter: Andy Jefferson
            Priority: Critical

In the JPOX Maven1 use of "site" we tagged all (XDOC) docs like this
        <title>Application Identity</title>

since XDOCs werent validated against any DTD etc.

Then in site.jsl we could access these properties via
<j:set var="jpoxpage_param">
    <x:expr select="./properties/jpoxpagetype"/>

With Maven2 I don't see how I can do this. I define my own skin for JPOX and in site.vm I
have $title, $authors but nothing more. Delving into Doxia I see where they were set up. No
allowance for users own properties.

The requirement for JPOX is that we have a large number of documents, and we tag each doc
for particular categories ... which will then appear on the web site as horizontal navigation
(the default Maven skin only has the navColumn ... vertical navigation). By being able to
tag docs into categories/subcategories etc we can then generate a site that the user selects
a horizontal nav category, and then a horizontal nav sub-category, and they see vertical navigation
within that subcategory. This was possible with Maven1 due to the above ability. Without an
equivalent in Maven2 we cannot switch over.

The JPOX docs (from Maven1) are available at
so you can understand what is being talked about here. If you need any more info let me know.
