Abstract [en]

Software documentation is an important aspect of software projects. Software documentation plays a key role in software

development if it is up-to-date and complete. Software documentation should have the synchronization with the software

development. One of the problems is duplication; same information is written in different documents and stored in different

places with different formats making things complex to manage. By using traditional documentation tools, it’s hard to maintain

documentation for complex systems and it is time consuming.

To overcome these problems, we have used XML Docbook that is a good solution for it. Docbook provides single sourcing

technique in which documents are written ideally in one place and can convert it into different other formats from the same

location. Actually docbook is based on xml which can be easily edited by most of the programming languages. If there are many

developers are writing documentation for their software modules then we don’t need to copy and paste all the documents into

one document to produce a complete document for the software product. We have to just add the references to all those files

that should be present in the final document and then compile it with some processors and it automatically get document

contents from all files and put it into one document, so it’s easy to handle and maintain software documentation with docbook.
