Subject Re: generating documentation
Date Tue, 01 Aug 2006 07:49:48 GMT
We now wrote an xslt who converts the db-schema.xml into xdocs. Using 
maven's xdoc plugin we get a nice html documentation included in the 
project documentation and are also able to create a pdf. If u r 
interested I'd like to contribute the file.
