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).
