S1000D is an international specification for the procurement and production of technical publications (mainly used in aerospace and aviation industries). It is an XML-based specification for preparing, managing, and using equipment maintenance and operations information.

S1000D is articulated based on three main notions:
  • Data Module - It is an XML file that defines a standalone information unit.

  • Data Module Structure - It defines how a Data Module is divided:
    • The Identification and Status part that identifies the Data Module within the CSDB structure.
    • The Content part that is the detailed information of the Data Module.
  • Common Source DataBase (CSDB) - It defines how the Data Modules are arranged inside a publication.

Oxygen XML Author Eclipse plugin does not have default built-in support for S1000D, but a company called Amplexor has developed a framework that can be installed in Oxygen XML Author Eclipse plugin to add support for S1000D documents.

To install the framework in Oxygen XML Author Eclipse plugin, follow these steps:
  1. Download or clone the framework on GitHub and install it as an additional framework.
  2. Download the S1000D specifications package that contains samples and schemas at S1000D Downloads.

  3. Copy the XML Schema files from [ZIP]\XML Schema Package\xml_schema_flat into the corresponding version of the xml_schema_flat folder.
