The PLDoc Ant task generates PL/SQL code documentation using the pldoc tool.

To define task in project, add this task definition to the beginning of your build.xml file:

    classpath="pldoc.jar" />

NB: if you are using Java 1.4 or later, you'll need to override the embedded XML classes. The simplest way to do this is to define environment variable ANT_OPTS before running Ant:

  export ANT_OPTS=-Djava.endorsed.dirs=$PLDOC_HOME/xalan/bin

or on Windows:

  set ANT_OPTS=-Djava.endorsed.dirs=%PLDOC_HOME\xalan\bin

where PLDOC_HOME is the directory where pldoc is installed.
