Build PHPDocumentor into Eclipse

This post is more than 18 months old. Since technology changes to rapidly, this content may be out of date (but that's not always the case). Please remember to verify any technical or programming information with the current release.

Well, maybe that’s a little bit misleading - actually you’re running PHPdocumentor as an external tool.

This wiki article gives the steps to configure the documenting package into your eclipse instance. I’ve followed these instructions and find it almost near perfect.

However, at (“the triangle”), I’ve been thinking about implementing a new method for documenting. Instead of making our output directory relative to the current path, we’ll be path-ing it to the release folder’s documentation subfolder. After each project goes to production, it’ll be up to the developer to run and update the newest documentation. Part of the development cycle will be creating the documentation and correcting any errors. I look forward to this - and thanks to those guys for documenting and tutorial-izing it.
