Subject Adding Sun XML doclet to build?
Date Mon, 08 Apr 2002 09:36:25 GMT
I've just tried the Sun XML Doclet with the xjavadocs build target Stefano
put in, and it's very cool :-)

It works ok, but I don't see how this is better than the old XML doclet
Cocoon had.
What are the benefits?

Stefano said that we couldn't redistribute it, but in the license it gives
me on the download, I read that redistribution is permitted IIUC:
