Subject Re: iBATIS 3 for Java Released (BETA 1)
Date Thu, 13 Aug 2009 15:16:55 GMT
It's not like there's NO documentation, there's better documentation than
JavaDocs.  The user guide is far more readable and logically structured and
searchable.   If you read it, you'll see that JavaDocs wouldn't offer much
more...

I had time to write it, so you have time to read it. :-)
