Description: Opened: 2005-01-02 08:43

As a picture says more than thousand words, I made an approach for a 
illustration of the chapter "Using A JDO Database" of our current documentation 
at http://castor.exolab.org/jdo.html:


There is available an english and a germ an version of the text.
It shows what happens and which functions are used when creating, querying, 
updating and deleting objects using JDO.

How can we include the pictures into the XML-formated documentation?

> How can we include the pictures into the XML-formated documentation?
Either you add a new template for e.g. <pictures> to exolab.xsl, or you simply
include an image element in the source file.

Martin, great stuff in general. This should make things a lot easier for our
users to grasp the main concepts. Having said that, I honestly think that the
images can (and should) be made easier to follow. It's very difficult to explain
why, so let's talk off-line.

Created an attachment (id=844)
patch for src/doc/jdo.xml

This is a first draft of the docu extension. (just copied from my web page)
It doesn't include the pictures itself, only <img src="..."/> references.
Any concrete ideas how to make them easier to follow?
