DocBook Doclet (dbdoclet) creates DocBook code from Java source documentation. DocBook Doclet is helpful, if you want to print reference handbooks of your API. The program can be used as javadoc doclet or as standalone application.

The standalone application can be used as a converter to transform HTML documents to DocBook documents. Additionally DocBookDoclet comes with a Swing application called dbdoclet.TiDBit, which helps you to manage your documentation projects and to create PDF files.

To run dbdoclet you need the JDK 1.4 or 1.5.
dbdoclet creates an appendix with statistical information. Therefore it uses the jfreechart library. While creating the images, access to a graphical context (like a X-Server) is necessary. If you want to run dbdoclet in a headless environment, specify the system property java.awt.headless, e.g. javadoc -J-Djava.awt.headless=true.
