Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] converting DocBook to Confluence

Hi Robert,

Confluence has a supported DocBook export, and an experimental DocBook import. Here is a link to a blog entry about this capability:


As you will see in the blog entry, the export was used to create a book that my company published. It worked quite well for that purpose. The author (Sarah Maddox) did some experimentation with the import, with results described in that entry, but I have not tried it myself. Also, be aware that the blog article is about a year old, so there has probably been some progress since then.

Sarah keeps good track of comments on her blog, so if you posted a comment on that blog entry, she could probably get you some more up-to-date information.

Best Regards,
Dick Hamilton

Confluence accepts its own XML format so I can of course write XSL transformations by myself, but before I start I would like to ask you if you have ever tried to convert DocBook to the one of supported Confluence format. Are you aware of any existing tools that would do the job?
