Reply to: DITA Open Toolkit upgrade instructionsJune 4, 2009 at 7:23 pm
#2 is the bit we don't have instructions for. It's complicated to document how to integrate with a moving target at this point, and our integration adds to the DITA OT as well (“Single HTML” and the “Enhanced PDF…” deliverables). Each time a new version of the DITA OT is released we spend quite a bit of effort and time integrating it and making sure it works.
If you must use a different version of the OT one solution would be to install it on a centrally located server and generate outputs from there. We have partners that can set this up, including some CMS partners that integrate with XMetaL Author Enterprise that have integrated the OT into their solutions as part of the CMS workflow that allow you to kick of the process from within the CMS (the first that comes to mind is Trisoft).
