Contribute External DITA-OT Distribution Plugin Extension

This type of plugin allows you to contribute an external DITA-OT distribution to Oxygen XML Editor.

Oxygen XML Editor comes bundled with DITA-OT version 3.6. If you want to use a different DITA-OT version, the AdditionalDITAOT plugin extension provides the ability to contribute an external distribution of the DITA Open Toolkit to Oxygen XML Editor.


For instance, if you wanted to use a DITA-OT version 1.8, your plugin.xml file might look like this:
 name="Contribute DITA-OT 1.8"
 description="Contributes DITA-OT 1.8"
 vendor="Syncro Soft"
 <extension type="AdditionalDITAOT" path="DITA-OT1.8.5" description="DITA-OT 1.8"/>

The @path attribute points to a folder located relative to the plugin.xml file and this folder is where the additional distribution of DITA-OT would be located.

When Oxygen XML Editor is started with this plugin enabled, that addition DITA-OT version can now be selected in the DITA Open Toolkit option in the DITA preferences page.
