My new E-booklet, JHOVE Tips for Developers, is now for sale on Smashwords.com. This was in part a trial run for publishing Files that Last, but anyone who integrates JHOVE with other software will find it useful. The chapters are:
- JHOVE Basics: A readable guide to installing, configuring, and running JHOVE, with information about each of the modules.
- The JHOVE API: Necessary information for integrating the JHOVE JAR into an application.
- Custom output: How to create a new output handler, for producing output in a different format or for better integration with an embedding application.
- Modules: Some supplemental information to the online tutorial on writing a module.
It’s a “name your own price” book. If you work with JHOVE and will have a use for the booklet, or if you just want to support JHOVE development, I hope you’ll buy it and pay a price you consider reasonable.
