All, I have a colleague who is being told that Framemaker is to go bye-bye very soon and that she will be needing to use Rational SODA to develop her documentation. I have googled this tool (as has she) and if they (as in her powers-that-be) want a developer who likes to write, then this would appear to be the tool of choice; however, for "classic" end-user deliverables such as Sys Admin guides, User Guides, OLH, etc. is does not appear to be the tool to use. She is desperately needing some supporting arguments/input to validate why Framemaker needs to stay.
Has anybody used this tool? Does anybody know anything about it? Arguments for/against using it as a classic TW tool? This list has sooooo many literate, articulate and knowledgable folks, I am sure somebody has experience with this or can explain the for/against tool arguments and help her along - Fred, John, Shlomo, Steve, Peter, Lynn, Kay, Bernard, etc. . . . Calling all to arms! Thanks, TVB Tammy Van Boening Senior Technical Writer Jeppesen Sanderson, Inc. 303-328-4420 tammy.vanboening at jeppesen.com
