This is something I have been thinking about for the last 2-3 years, I see situation where companies have created a lot of wonderful applications.
However there is no documentation as to what those applications are, what code, databases, tables, servers.
I know this is a part of the argument about coldfusion developers not being computer scientists, and perhap's we're not..
But how come there isn't some research or tools on this?
Am i the only one concerned with the overwhelming lack of documentation methodologies?
I mean, currently i am on contract, and we don't have documentation of our applications, and we want to create that, but don't have a clear method as how to extract that information and put it into an updatable and digestable format.
There's no list of applications, there's no manual or bibliography of coding style's etc. They have good people here, but how can we put it together...
I mean we like many people, don't have the time and energy to browse by hand every aspect of the sites, and then also browse thru the code, databases, structures etc.
There must be a means, to extract that information and present it in a digestable format.
Have any of you seen tools like this?
Does a documentation metholodgy exist?
Or does all that matter is that we put comments in our code?
This just personaly irritates me, because we all want to get to this higher level of professionalism, as an industry, but do we cover all the bases that includes?
Just a question.
