Sandra Clark started a working group to discuss and come up with the Fusedoc 3.0 specification. Fusedoc are a way of specifying what a Fusebox fuse does, its inputs and outputs and other useful documentation. It is written in XML so that it is machine readable. This is long overdue and hopefully will address issues with Fusedocs that have come up in the past.
The Fusedoc specification that is currently available was created around the time of Fusebox 3.0 and ColdFusion 5. It does not take into consideration any of the more advanced data types such as objects.
The group is hosted at http://groups.google.com/group/fusedocs3
Goals of this group include:
- Creation of a DTD or Schema Representation of Fusedocs Version 3.0
- Documentation of both the Representation and Usage.
- Possibility of Tool creation for Fusedocs within other Editors, specifically
- Articles and Tutorials on Fusedocs would also be welcome.
Please note that this group is not for help with the existing Fusedocs,
rather it is a working group to create both a new specification and the
tools needed to work with it.
