I am kinda favor in one big Drools "reference manual" (this is the term
coined by hibernate, spring and seam)
It follows the structure you just outlined:
- part expert
- chapter 1 expert-intro
- chapter 2 expert-foo
- part flow
- chapter 3 flow-intro
- chapter 4 flow-bar
The advantage of this that you can choose to view it as single_html and
use ctrl-F in firefox to find what you're looking for.
The hibernate guys decided to separate the classic, annotations and
as a user I 've found this annoying, because I often find myself having
to ctrl-F on all single_html's before I find a solution (or I realize

The User Guide is now just release notes, history/background info and
general introduction, install guide. Its entitled Drools Introduction
and General User Guide. That kinda sucks, anyone got a better name?
I was going to split out documentation into it's own docbook modules,
but as we have a separation of expert, flow and fusion I think it might
get too fragmented. So I'll move examples docs back into the last
chapter of each book. With the general splitting up it should be more
manageable now having examples in the main project manuals.
