Presentation material for DITABUG / DITA RTP, December 7 2011

NOTE: while this material remains here as an archive, for the latest sample plug-ins, please check the new toolkit samples page.

The following plug-ins may prove useful starting points when trying to make use of the DITA-OT plug-in extension points described in the presentation. Each of the plug-ins should be unzipped into the DITA-OT/demo/ directory, though they could just as easily be placed in the DITA-OT/plugins/ directory.

If you don't have it already, the DITA-OT can be found here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/dita-ot/

The presentation that went along with these samples is now posted at dita.xml.org: Overriding the DITA Open Toolkit with Plug-ins

Documentation for the extension points can be found here: DITA-OT landing page. Look in the documentation for release 1.5.4 or later, under Developer Reference -> Creating DITA-OT plug-ins.
