Configure the location of the DITA Open Toolkit catalog

When you install IXIASOFT CCMS Output Generator, you need to configure the location of the catalog for the DITA Open Toolkit version you are using.

CCMS Output Generator needs the DITA-OT catalog to parse the content sent by the IXIASOFT CCMS.

Note: You can support multiple versions of the DITA-OT, as long as your DTDs are the same in all the versions. If you are using multiple versions of the DITA-OT, enter only one of the versions in the file below. You can enter any version you are using.

To configure the DITA-OT catalog to use in your deployment:

  1. Open the %OutputGenDir%/data/catalogs/catalog-dita-outgen.xml file.
    Note: If this is the first time that you are installing the CCMS Output Generator, open the catalog-dita-outgen.xml.empty file and save it as catalog-dita-outgen.xml (remove the empty suffix).
  2. Set the <nextCatalog> value to the location of the DITA-OT catalog-dita.xml file.
    By default, the CCMS Output Generator uses the DITA-OT 2.5.4 catalog. If you are not using DITA-OT 2.5.4 in your deployment, you need to specify the location of the catalog for the DITA-OT version you are using. For example:
    <?xml version="1.0" ?>
    <catalog xmlns="urn:oasis:names:tc:entity:xmlns:xml:catalog" prefer="public">
    <!-- This is the path to the catalog that the Output Generator uses -->
    <!-- Change the reference to the DITA OT that is used by default -->
    <nextCatalog catalog="../dita-ot-2.5.4/catalog-dita.xml"/>
    Note: The directory nomenclature used by the DITA-OT changed between versions 1.8 and 2.x, so make sure to use the actual directory name on the CCMS Output Generator machine when setting up this field.
  3. Save and close catalog-dita-outgen.xml.
