Automated WSDL documentation for CMIS
I have used my wsdl2dita Python script to generate DITA source files from the WSDL file describing CMIS (Content Management Interoperability Standard), which is sponsored by OASIS (Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards), the same organization that sponsors the DITA standard.
Using the DITA Open Toolkit I generated a PDF file, which is posted on this site's download page. For those curious, you can browse through this PDF (also available on the Downloads page) to get an overview of the web services and operations that make up the CMIS standard.
If your organization uses or produces web services, you can automate the creation and production of your WSDL documentation using the same techniques used to produce this CMIS document.

The OASIS CMIS Technical Committee works to standardize a web services interface specification that will enable greater interoperability of Enterprise Content Management (ECM) systems. CMIS uses web services and Web 2.0 interfaces to enable rich information to be shared across Internet protocols in vendor-neutral formats, among document systems, publishers and repositories, within one enterprise and between companies.
