Arbortext is there as the editing tool. Publishing happens via two other products that talk to the database directly. I hadn't really thought about the workflow until these postings, I was trying to avoid additional steps, but there is probably nothing keeping me from doing this. Can't hurt to ask anyway ;-)

The same here. The CSDB we use is limited. The data is stored in a Database and exported at the time of publishing. On export, it's in S1000D format and I can process as I wish. From there we use what ever processor we like. In our case, Saxon (xslt 2.0) and FOP. We can publish online or via a Desk Top Application written on Java. Your CSDB must be able to output to S1000D? Once you have the exported S1000D output, you can do what you want with.

It sounds like you publish via ArborText (for the convenience of the tech writers). We use xmetal for the tech writers and xmlspy for the developers, but publish through a desktop app if they choose to. In fact, some of the books require a lot of memory and must be publish via a 64bit server. So we give both options.
