The use of software documentation in traditional file-based format has various issues. Storing and annotating the content of software documentation in semantic wiki pages addresses many of these issues and supports knowledge retrieval. This paper reports on the application of semantic annotation and knowledge retrieval using the ArchiMind semantic wiki system. Knowledge in documentation is annotated by indexing text with a lightweight software engineering ontology. The process and the use-cases of this semantic annotation of software documents are described.
