Subject Re: [ANNOUNCE] Apache Velocity DocBook Framework 1.0 released
Date Tue, 14 Aug 2007 09:15:40 GMT

Great work guys.

I managed to get the existing documentation of Luntbuild building to HTML
and PDF using DBF in a very short amount of time.  I had spent ages looking
for a way to process docbook, but there are so many tools, in various
states, and often unix only.

Now using Apache Velocity DocBook Framework I can build all the docs from an
Ant script on mac, linux or windows.  No problem.

The only issue I had were:

1) the existing docbook files were named *.docbook and the build-docbook.xml
script expects all docbook files to be *.xml, so I had to do some renames.  

2) Also I had to move some files around to match the expected structure, no
big problem.

3) Had problems running without an internet connection.  Despite the
xml-catalog.xml and being generated correctly, and
being on the classpath, when I run the ant target I get
"".  Works fine with an
internet connection.

Thanks again.
