Common Java Cookbook: Release 0.8: Working External Links


Alright, two releases in a day. Earlier this evening I published version 0.7 which made sure that we have a reasonable set of public URLs and consistent internal links. Now, I’m unleashing version 0.8 which enables external links. For some reason, the DocBook O’Reilly sent me had used systemitem instead of ulink. This meant that URLs like http://jakarta.apache.org were simply being printed on the page without a link to the URL being displayed. Nevermind the fact that some of these URLs no longer exist, we’re slowly getting the book to a baseline from which the content will start to rapidly evolve into something new.

Next steps: Not sure, either I’m going to figure out how to olink to Maven: The Definitive Guide or I’m going to start removing references to Jakarta. We’ll see what tomorrow brings.
