A proposed outline for a Sun Software Library User's Guide.[Read More]
The Sun Software Library is designed to be easy to use and expedient to navigate. Users can perform complex or simple searches and updates of entities with parallel ease. And help is typically available in many contexts.
It would be of additional benefit, however, if all the concepts related to the Sun Software Library and which would be helpful to a user were documented, and if many of the paths and most of the logistics of using the Library were similarly documented.
The Sun Software Library User's Guide will document those concepts and that flow. It will differ from the help in that it will be more inclusive in its discussion of concepts and logistics, and in that it will show complete paths towards accomplishing specific tasks. It will also have screenshots that illustrate many of the steps along the user's way,
As someone with an interest in the Sun Software Library, you're the best person to come up with ideas for a User's Guide. The topics for the User's Guide are yours --both to suggest and to say why they are needed. Ideas for topics can be as simple as describing a concept: "What is a Publisher?" and the steps involved in "Writing a Review".
Simply provide a comment to this blog entry with your suggestion, or hopefully, with more than one suggestion. We'll collate the suggestions and provide the resulting outline before the book is written and then published on the Sun Software Library.`
You're the co-author!
Welcome to the Sun Software Library blog, where you will find interesting updates and tidbits about using the Sun Software Library.
