Subject Re: generating documentation
Date Tue, 05 Sep 2006 08:45:28 GMT
Hi John,
thank you very much! I checked it out and it works smoothly! Since we 
use mvn we will stick to our usual solution using ddlutils and 
transforming the xml to xdoc so we can include it directly in our 
project documentation (html,pdf) though.

keep up the good work
