Upgrading the Oxygen XML WebHelp Plugin for DITA OT

To upgrade your Oxygen XML WebHelp plugin for the DITA Open Toolkit, follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to the plugins directory of your DITA OT distribution and delete the old Oxygen XML WebHelp plugin files (oxygen_custom.xsl, oxygen_custom_html.xsl) and directories (com.oxygenxml.highlight, com.oxygenxml.media, com.oxygenxml.webhelp).
  2. Go to Oxygen XML WebHelp website, download the latest DITA-OT version of the installation kit, and unzip it.
  3. Copy all plugin directories from the unpacked archive to the plugins directory of the DITA OT distribution. This is necessary to enable certain functionality. For example, the com.oxygenxml.highlight directory adds syntax highlight capabilities to your WebHelp output for codeblock sections that contain source code snippets (XML, Java, JavaScript).
  4. In the home directory of the DITA Open Toolkit, run the startcmd.bat script on Windows or startcmd.sh script on Linux/Mac OS X. In the displayed command line interface console, run ant -f integrator.xml.
