This talk will be about documentation. Not the tedious bit (writing), but how to use the Eclipse based tools for it (exciting). I will show the editors within Eclipse and how to continously build common publication formats, such as Eclipse Help, EPUB and PDF from one single source and that even includes generating a table of contents. This can be done as part of your build script, with the aid of a Maven plug-in or Ant. I will also show how you can properly include LaTeX formuals into your EPUBs and PDFs. The formulas can be typed in using a new Eclipse-based editor.
Some of these tools have a powerful API. For the sake of demonstration I will show how you can take the programming book you just bought, the one with the awful formatting, and improve it using the Mylyn Docs EPUB API with just a few lines of Java code and some CSS.
This is a longer version of the talk with the same title given at EclipseCon Europe and EclipseCon North America. The slides and code from the earlier presentations can be found at https://github.com/turesheim/mylyn-docs-examples
