support for DITA-OT plug-ins in transformation scenarios

Post by sbodoff » Thu Sep 27, 2012 2:21 am

If I add a plug-in to the DITA-OT is it possible to have the output type show up as one of the DITA transformation types in the DITA OT transformation scenarios? For example, the DITA 4 Publishers project contains plug-ins that I would like to invoke from oXygen.

Hi,

Right now the list of selectable transformation types is hard-coded. We have plans to improve this behavior in a future version and I will update this thread when the issue gets implemented.

We also have plans to fully integrate out of the box all the D4P plugins in the DITA Open Toolkit which comes bundled with Oxygen. This will probably happen in Oxygen 14.2 next spring.

What you should do for now would be to create a transformation scenario for XHTML, then in the Parameters tab add a new parameter called transtype with the custom D4P transtype value. Then add or change parameters accordingly.
Actually Eliot Kimber has this explained better in the D4P user guide:
