.PULL file not getting created

Thu Nov 14, 2013 7:18 pm

Hi. I am new to the DITA processing arena, and I am having some difficulty. I have a valid MAP, and valid DITA files. Of the 22 topic files, 19 are getting processed, but three are failing with a message " Error! java.io.FileNotFoundException ". Here's an extract from the error log:

[xslt] Processing /Volumes/MakarSD16g2/XMLDocs/P490S - CMES-BCA FN110 EPM Search/temp/P490S-CMES-BCA_FN110_EPM_Search-CMES-P490S-0016T.xml to /Volumes/MakarSD16g2/XMLDocs/P490S - CMES-BCA FN110 EPM Search/temp/P490S-CMES-BCA_FN110_EPM_Search-CMES-P490S-0016T.xml.pull

[xslt] /Applications/OxygenXML/oXygen 11.2/frameworks/dita/DITA-OT/xsl/preprocess/topicpullImpl.xsl:594: Error! java.io.FileNotFoundException: /Volumes/MakarSD16g2/XMLDocs/P490S - CMES-BCA FN110 EPM Search/temp/P490S-CMES-BCA_FN110_EPM_Search-CMES-P490S-0018TL.xml (No such file or directory) Cause: java.io.FileNotFoundException: /Volumes/MakarSD16g2/XMLDocs/P490S - CMES-BCA FN110 EPM Search/temp/P490S-CMES-BCA_FN110_EPM_Search-CMES-P490S-0018TL.xml (No such file or directory)
[xslt] [DOTX031E][ERROR]: The file file:///Volumes/MakarSD16g2/XMLDocs/P490S%20-%20CMES-BCA%20FN110%20EPM%20Search/temp/P490S-CMES-BCA_FN110_EPM_Search-CMES-P490S-0018TL.xml is not available to resolve link information. Either the file could not be found, or a DITAVAL file was used to remove the file's contents. Be aware that the path information above may not match the link in your topic. Check to make sure the file exists and DITAVAL file isn't used to remove the contents of the file.The location of this problem was at (File = /Volumes/MakarSD16g2/XMLDocs/P490S - CMES-BCA FN110 EPM Search/P490S - CMES-BCA FN110 EPM Search.ditamap, Element = topicref:19)


Now, all the source files are in the same folder as the three that fail. The DITA MAP has similar references to all the files, so why is the toolkit failing to create the XML and PULL files for only three? I don't even know what a DITAVAL is (yet), so I doubt that's the problem. (I am creating the files, and am not doing anything fancy yet.)

What do I look for?

Never mind!

It turns out there were some invalid characters still in the individual source files, namely an ASCII #1. Getting them out solved the immediate problem. :oops: :oops:
