ForgeRock Doc Maven Plugin

Most core documentation sources for the open-source projects led by ForgeRock are DocBook XML and Asciidoc text files.

The open-source projects led by ForgeRock use Apache Maven for builds and to maintain project dependencies.

The forgerock-doc-maven-plugin and its dependencies make it possible to process core documentation sources and to build draft docs with Maven.

The plugin started out as a wrapper for the docbkx-tools plugin, which drives the DocBook XSL stylesheets in Maven builds. It has since grown to perform a variety of pre-processing tasks.
