Run the integrator on the DITA-OT

Any time you make a change to the DITA-OT, you need to run the integrator.

For example, if you add new plugins, make changes to existing plugins, or use a different version of the DITA-OT for your transformation scenarios, you need to run the integrator on the DITA-OT.

IXIASOFT provides two batch files in the %OutputGenDir%/data/ directory to help you run the integrator, according to the version of the DITA-OT. They are:

  • _DITA-OT-1.8.5-integrator.bat: Runs the integrator on the DITA-OT 1.8.5
  • _DITA-OT-2.3.1-integrator.bat: Runs the integrator on the DITA-OT 2.3.1
Note: If you are using a different version of DITA-OT, you can create your own batch file by making a copy of one of the existing files above and update the DITA-OT version inside the file to point to the correct DITA-OT path.
To run the integrator on the DITA-OT:
DITA-OT 1.x family:
  • On Windows: In the %OutputGenDir%/data/ directory, double-click the _DITA-OT-1.8.5-integrator.bat file.
  • On Linux:
    1. In the %OutputGenDir%/data/%OT_Dir%/ directory, run startcmd.sh.
    2. At the command prompt, enter:
      ant -f integrator.xml

The integration build runs and you should soon see BUILD SUCCESSFUL.

DITA-OT 2.x family:
  • On Windows: In the %OutputGenDir%/data/ directory, double-click the _DITA-OT-2.3.1-integrator.bat file.
  • On Linux: In the %OutputGenDir%/data/%OT_Dir%/bin directory, enter the following command:
    ./ant -f ../integrator.xml (Linux)

The integration build runs and you should soon see BUILD SUCCESSFUL.
