Generating Wiki Documentation from Database Schema

The first public version of dbscript already had the functionality to generate XML documents from database schema information.

I extended this functionality to apply stored XSL files to the generated XML. Thus, it is possible to transform table information from XML into MediaWiki markup, or any other text-based markup.

See here for a screenshot of the web application, and the result documenting a table used by dbscript.

An evaluation version of dbscript is available for download here.
