Official Mirror:
DocBook is, in part, "an XML vocabulary that lets you create documents in a presentation-neutral form that captures the logical structure of your content". Another aspect of DocBook is the rendering of that content into various formats using DocBook-supplied (or custom) XSLT stylesheets. Basically, DocBook allows you to write and maintain a single source for documentation, and to then render that single source into multiple formats such as PDF or HTML. The purpose of the jDocBook Plugin is to allow these DocBook transformations to occur as a natural part of the users Maven build. The main difficulty with this has always been the fact that DocBook transformations are usually very closely tied to the user's local environment. The design goal with writing this plugin was to utilize Maven's dependency mechanism to bring all the pieces together on demand. Those pieces are: 1. the DocBook distribution; 2. custom XSLT; 3. custom fonts; 4. custom images; 5. custom css. These are the ingredients that when mixed with the source file(s) and stirred with an XSLT transformer produce the desired output(s).
