Subject FW: Chemistry documentation page
Date Fri, 12 Feb 2010 12:01:41 GMT

I prefer both, a wiki and the site. A site is more formal and covers all aspects inclusive
the details like module structure or reports of the project. Because of that a site is often
complex and someone who is not familiar to the project looses often scope in its details.

The wiki could be a perfect entry point to the project for someone who is new or just want
to use the project results. Redundancy could be avoided by linking the wiki and the site together.

An additional point is JavaDoc. Apart of the more or useless one liner comments ;-) it is
also possible to put in detailed descriptions to explain and how to use the API. Not as an
overview, but on the very detailed level.

Hi Jens,
I see the wiki actually as more developers/design documentation while  
I see the comprehensive and structured documentation as perfect fit  
for the Maven site capabilities.

That would automatically generate a default documentation site (with  
selected reports) per every module + every custom documentation page  
you write in the src/site folder of that module.

What do also the others think?
