Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] webhelpindexer.jar w/o Ant?
I am completely unfamiliar with Java, but familiar with a variety of other languages. I took a look at the code and I don't *think* the indexer makes use of any Ant facilities, so I suspect all it needs is to be uncoupled from Ant by redefining the method. I shall take a poke at it myself, but hope that someone with actual Java skills does the same!
