Hi Jo:


I think that mOKI document is interesting also for users so they can have the details about why a test fails or warns (in a couple of hours I will send a new version of the User Manual which shows the use of reading results.xml and going back to moki.xml to guess in detail the reasons for non passed tests.


About Schema and documentation of mOKI, I can try to do it and include it in the user and developer manual (I think it is relevant to both documents). Of course, with credits to you as the creator of the format. I mean, I only mean to create a first "physical" version of the Schema. Which takes me to wonder if DTD would not be better than an XML Schema. What do you think about it?


In what regards to the XSLT to summarise results, I think it is OK how it is now. It is a low priority option, at least in my opinion.

I guess this is OK for the Dev Manual. Actually, the fact of including execution of unitary tests in the User Manual is only to stop people from not understanding "that weird thing" included in the CVS and tease them to go for the Dev Manual if they deeply bit Checker's bait.


About the command line thing, if I am not wrong it is shown in "3.1.2 Command line usage". Do you mean anything different to what appears in that subsection? 

Building and launching would be better for Dev Manual, but if you think that a brief description of ANT targets, it is OK for me.


Finally, the JAR did not seem to be there so we submitted it to the CVS in the root.


Thanks a lot for your comments. Please, I encourage the rest of the TF to go on commenting before we release today.


Best regards,

Hi Nacho


I think this is a good start. It's particularly useful to see how to launch it from Eclipse.


I am actually (still) in the process of doing a schema and documentation for moki and have yet to cover the results format. I am wondering what depth these should be covered in the user guide, the illustrations are helpful I think, but I am wondering if most users will be more interested in the results doc? - I assume that in most cases people won't actually see the moki document?


I wonder if a simple XSLT to summarise the results would be useful?


I think it might be useful to cover the command line options as they exist at present.


I think also that an expanded version of Sean's note [1] would be useful.

I wonder if it would be useful to show how to (build) launch and run a JAR - where is it by the way?

Subject: Draft for the user manual


Hi everyone,

I am sending again to the list an e-mail I have sent about 1 hour and a half ago.
It is taking a lot to receive it in the list although my mail server says it is already sent and it may have to see with the 1MB PDF attachment.

I am only attaching the ODP file now and I will send you some details to download the PDF for those who do not have OpenOffice installed.

And now, the text I previously sent...

Hi everyone,

Here I come with a first draft of the User Manual of the Checker, for you to review. I will still work on it tomorrow but, before I am done with some details, I think it would be good that you could send me your opinion about the structure (theoretically, agreed in Sophia-Antopolis) and the contents.

I am sending it in ODP and PDF formats (the latter, just in case you do not have OpenOffice installed).

Some comments:

- I guess that the logos are OK, except SevenVal's. Can you please send me a quality image, Roland?

- There is stuff missing: the final link for the binary release JAR, description for each jar on which the Checker depends, better explanations in certain parts of the doc, comment the results doc, enter some examples and create a glossary. Everything will be done by tomorrow (except the glossary thing, that I will add in next version of the doc).

- It seems important to me to explain people how to download the code via CVS so they can experiment with the code (and referencing the future Developer Manual, where all the guts of the Checker will be explained). I talk about it as s doc in development, because I want to publish it in a fine way, even for an alpha release. I'd publish the binary jar with the User Manual and expect the first version of the Developer Manual and a User Manual by next week.

- Please check the way in which I reference you all and your organizations. Also the copyright stuff. I tried to be brief and reference things like licenses of the libraries and the W3C License itself.

- I need that you confirm that you are entering any more changes to the Checker in order to show people how to import the code in the CVS repository into Eclipse.  I have detected changes in several checkouts I made today and it makes no sense that I document it if it is going to change (for example, the place where XSLTs are placed, some package naming and so on.

Well, I am looking forward to your comments.
