DITA CMS server environments

The DITA CMS server is installed in two environments:

  • Production environment: This environment contains the actual data and is the environment where users perform all the work. It is also where the deliverable documents are generated.
  • Development / Test environment: This environment can be used to develop and test custom templates and transformation scenarios, validate configuration changes, test new updates and upgrades before putting them in production, test new releases of the DITA-OT or DITA specification, etc. IXIASOFT recommends that a development/test environment be installed.
Note: The DITA CMS server environments cannot be accessed concurrently by the DITA CMS Eclipse Client.
