Setting up transformations for external data sources

Post by lopresti » Wed Oct 17, 2018 11:07 pm

Hi Oxygen,

I'm using XML Editor 20.1 and DITA OT 2.5.1 to create transformation scenarios. I've set up the connection between the editor and our CMS through the Data Source Explorer and I can exit and save files. I'm not successful when I apply a transformation scenario. Below is the error message I see almost immediately after I click Apply Associated (scenario).

Code: Select all

Buildfile: /Users/kate.lopresti/Documents/dita-ot-2.5.1/build.xml
log4j:ERROR A "org.apache.log4j.ConsoleAppender" object is not assignable to a "org.apache.log4j.Appender" variable.
log4j:ERROR The class "org.apache.log4j.Appender" was loaded by
log4j:ERROR [ro.sync.xml.transformer.k@53ca01a2] whereas object of type
log4j:ERROR "org.apache.log4j.ConsoleAppender" was loaded by [].
log4j:ERROR Could not instantiate appender named "CONSOLE".
Thoughts on what is happening? It seems to be independent of DITA OT version. I wonder if my args.input value needs to be different.

FWIW this is the first time I've used Data Source Explorer.

Hi Kate,

So you configured a webdav connection and you opened from the Data Source Explorer the main DITA Map in the DITA Maps manager view, right?
And you have your custom DITA OT distribution.
Can you send us via email ( the entire output received in the DITA OT console view?
