I’m trying to get DocBook WebHelp building working.
Although I do already have a working Ant build file based on the one from the DocBook stylesheet distribution I would like to use Catalogs for resolving my stylesheet locations, which the one provided doesn’t.
For my other target formats I’m using Saxon 6, via an Ant Java task. I have catalogs working for these as that’s taken care of by parameters passed to Saxon.
For WebHelp I’m using the Xslt task – that’s how the one in the stylesheet distribution is written, and it uses attributes like “if” and “_expression_” in its “param” elements, and I don’t know how to convert these to Java/Saxon.
I’ve tried to follow Ant’s documentation regarding the <xmlcatalog> element but I can’t get it to work. (I am finding the Ant documentation in this area extremely hard to follow)
By “can’t get it to work” I mean it doesn’t find the files I’m trying to reference via the catalog. It doesn’t show any messages indicating whether or not it is using the resolver, so I presume it isn’t finding it.
Does anyone have any complete example of this working.
Ie one that includes a reference to the resolver jar, and the classpath, and the catalog file and/or catalogManager.properties.
Alternatively – I think the only thing that blocked me from using Saxon was not knowing how to implement @_expression_ and @if, so if anyone can indicate how to do that for Java/Saxon I may revert to that option.
