    Could someone tell me how to build/load the DocBook documentation from the jwnl-docs trunk of the svn?  I'm using Eclipse.  There's a rather lengthy explanation that might be relevant at http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/library/os-eclipse-docbook/index.html. 

    Is this supposed to be better than the Javadoc somehow?

    Thanks,

    Chris

      DocBook and Javadoc are different. Javadoc produces API documentation for the various class files. One of the principal benefits of DocBook is that it enables its users to create document content in a presentation-neutral form that captures the logical structure of the content; that content can then be published in a variety of formats, including HTML, PDF, man pages and HTML Help, without requiring users to make any changes to the source.

      If I get the chance I'll write something up. The documentation is located in HTML form at:

      http://jwordnet.sourceforge.net/handbook.html

      Sorry for the late reply.
