Create a library of automated build and packaging tools for
upcoming releases of the Xalan-C/C++ XSLT Library.
The Xalan-C XSLT library uses the Xerces-C XML Parser library.
The current stable release of Xerces-C determines the platforms
that will be supported.
The final automation products should be able to build the binary
packages and the documentation packages from the SVN repository.
The constructed packages should be suitable for distribution.
We need work with implementing the packaging tools for Unix-like
systems including Linux, AIX, HPUX, and Solaris platforms.
There has been significant work with Microsoft Studio .NET platforms
with support of VS 2003, 2005, 2008 and 2010 equating to VC7.1,
VC8, VC9, and VC10. There is some minor cleanup work in this area.
Extra credit: Prepare Doxygen/GraphViz tools to on a Microsoft
Windows platform to build the Xalan-C API Reference.
A summary of the completed products and how to use them is
required as instructions to developers. The products should
be tested with appropriate tools and sample programs.
The library of automation tools will be committed to the
project SVN repository. There is a SVN branch where the
automation tools can reside during development.
