This repository contains the sources for the Apache DB website.
The content and styling of the site is defined in the AsciiDoc format. It is built using Maven. For details on publishing the site see section Publishing the Site.

mvn clean compile. This generates the HTML files in
target/site. The site can then be viewed by opening the local file
target/site/index.html in a browser.
Contributions to the website are always appreciated. If you are new to this project, please have a look at our mailing lists page first.
