WebHelp causes MalformedInputException when file names contain umlauts

Post by Patrik » Wed Aug 31, 2016 8:57 am

Hi,

when I perform a WebHelp transformation on a DITA map with topics that have umlauts in their file name I get an exception:

Code: Select all


...DITA-OT\plugins\com.oxygenxml.webhelp\build_dita.xml:161: Fatal error during transformation using ...DITA-OT\plugins\com.oxygenxml.webhelp\xsl\dita\indexterms\collectIndexterms.xsl: Failed to read input file file:///.../DITA-OT/plugins/com.gdvdl.dita/test/temp/webhelp-responsive/fullditatopic.list (java.nio.charset.MalformedInputException); SystemID: file:/...DITA-OT/plugins/com.oxygenxml.webhelp/xsl/dita/indexterms/collectIndexterms.xsl; Line#: 30; Column#: -1
Obviously, a workaroun dis to avoid umlauts in filenames. But maybe there's a way to use the same coding when reading the file as it was used when writing it?

Thanks and regards,
Patrik

Hello,

This issue has already been fixed and it will be available in the next Oxygen release (18.1).
If you are running Oxygen 18.0 then you can download a patch for this issue from:
http://oxygenxml.com/forum/files/webhel ... eption.zip
The patch contains two files:
  • collectIndexterms.xsl
  • build_dita_template.xml
Follow these steps to apply the patch to your Oxygen installation:
  1. Locate the WebHelp plugin directory. Depending on your current DITA-OT distribution, it is located in:
    1. For DITA-OT 1.8:

      Code: Select all

      {Oxygen-Installation-directory}/frameworks/dita/DITA-OT/plugins/com.oxygenxml.webhelp/
    2. For DITA-OT 2.x:

      Code: Select all

      {Oxygen-Installation-directory}/frameworks/dita/DITA-OT2.x/plugins/com.oxygenxml.webhelp/
    You can find out what is your current DITA-OT distribution in the DITA Preferences page: Main Menu -> Options -> Preferences: see the selected value for the DITA Open Toolkit option.
  2. Replace the {webhelp-plugin-directory}/xsl/dita/indexterms/collectIndexterms.xsl file with collectIndexterms.xsl
  3. Replace the {webhelp-plugin-directory}/build_dita_template.xml file with build_dita_template.xml
  4. Run the DITA OT integrator:
    1. In the DITA Maps Manager view click on the Configure Transformation Scenario(s) action in the toolbar
    2. Select and run the Run DITA OT Integrator transformation scenario
