Hi Jeremy,

Yes, that would be much better. Really what I committed was just a start, 
I was just messing around and got something to work. I'll put in more work 
to improve it when I can, and of course everybody should feel free to jump 
in and change what I've done so far if they get the time or inclination.

Nirmal, I think have FOREST_HOME set as an environment variable would be
better then use:

diff -u -r1.34 build.xml
--- build.xml   3 Feb 2003 21:30:49 -0000       1.34
+++ build.xml   4 Feb 2003 13:40:22 -0000

+    <property environment="env"/>
+    <property name="forrest.home" value="${env.FORREST_HOME}"/>

then you wouldn't need to modify build.xml.

What do you think?

I modified the build to include a target for forrest. It isn't working
smoothly but it's a start. Here's what you need to do to make it work:

1. Modify build.xml (set forrest.home to point to your forrest
installation). build.xml has a check for this and won't build the website
if this variable doesn't point to a valid directory.

2. Copy the "documentation" directory (from
xml-axis-wsif/forrest-src/src/documentation) to java/src (so now you have

3. Run ant as usual specifying "site" as the target. This should build the
website under java/build/site
