<h2>Getting Started</h2>
<p>JET is a tool for generating one or more files from a model using <b>templates</b>. Templates are a mixture of
text and JET commands (know as <b>tags</b>). The tags extract information from a model, and place it into the expanded
template. JET then writes the expanded template to the Eclipse workspace. A collection of JET templates is called a 
<b>transformation</b>. Each transformation is created as a separate JET project.</p>
<p>You can start learning JET by <a href="newProject.xhtml">creating a JET project</a>, 
understanding the <a href="transformStructure.xhtml">structure of a JET project</a>
and learning the <a href="commonTags.xhtml">most common JET tags</a>.
JET transformations extract information from an input model via XPath expressions. You can learn the basics of XPath
by reading <a href="essentialXPath.xhtml">Essential XPath</a> </p>
<p>In order to test your JET transformation, see <a href="runningTransforms.xhtml">Running JET Transformations</a></p>
<p>Once completed, you can share your transformation with others. See <a href="deployingTransforms.xhtml">Deploying Transformations</a>.</p>
