I'm trying to generate PDF2/XHTML using the DITA Open Toolkit with FrameMaker 12 but nothing happens when building the output.
I can see the command line start but is then immediately shutdown, and there is nothing generated in the output folder.
I have installed the Java JDK and set the Java_Home variable (before that the output options box didn't open).
Do anyone have a glue what is wrong?
I am from FrameMaker Engineering Team, Can you Please confirm the Exact Steps for this scenario? And If possible share the Files.
If the files contain any Images, are they present in some other Folder (other than from where the file is located)???
Thanks & Regards,
I have just tried to use a simple document for testing, incase I would run into trouble.
For example, I have created a DITA concept topic with a title and some paragraphs.
I save the document to: text_topic_en_001, and then try to publish with the DITA-OT.
I suspect I have installed the Java applications wrong, as the DITA-OT plug-in is already installed with FM12
Thanks for you reply Pawan Keshari
I'm still stucking on trying to transform a dita.map in FrameMaker with the DITA-OT plugin.
But now I managed to get the DITA-OT up and running and processed a dita.map to PDF and XHTML.
I downloaded the Toolkit to 😧 directory that is not under the windows C:program files protection.
Could it be that DITA-OT for FM12 is installed in the C:program files directory which is locked for changed by windows that causes the build to fail?
Just to Confirm :
1). You are able to get the Output from DITA-OT when you have downloaded it in 😧 Directory???
2). But you are stuck in getting Output from DITA-OT through Framemaker???
And for, that the DITA-OT is installed in C: , it doesn't make any difference. You will not be able to save any output in c: but you can save them anywhere else.
Can you tell us the exact step, so that we can find the cause of the failure and if possible the files.
Thanks & Regards,
1) Yes, I downloaded the DITA-OT 1.8.4 and did the demo build (the sample files delivered with the Toolkit), however it didn't work at first, but after I moved the toolkit to D:directory instead of C:directory it worked.
2) Yes, still nothing happens when I'm trying to get the Output from DITA-OT through FrameMaker, I have tried many different files, so I don't think there is anything wrong with the files, due to the fact that I can process them with the DITA-OT but not through FrameMaker.
Ok then, can you please share the logs created after unsuccessful output generation.
I click the "view log file" option, but I see any log file and I don't know where I find the file.
In the FrameMaker console, the following text is added
Running: C:\Users\ronny\AppData\Local\Temp\~ant-build.cmd .
You should get the Console something as shown in above Snapshot. Are you getting anything like this?
Can You Please Send me the Snapshots for the Steps you are doing and results of those steps.
It will help in diagnosing the Issue more promptly.
And the log files are created in the folder named "<build-filename>" e.g. "build-hierarchy.ditamap", This folder is created where your Files resides.
Thanks & Regards,
Sorrry for my delayd reply.
Yes I get the console as shown in your image, but I can only see the console start up but then it immediatly shuts down.
And the "<build-filename>" folder is empty.
Here are some Pictures of the steps:2.
1. I tried to change DITA-OT Directory, but it did not help at all, so I put it back to the FM folder as seen in image 1 & image 2.
2. Then I click pdf2 or xhtml and press Build. The console is started and shutdown, and the build folder is empty
We are looking into it and will revert back as soon we find out the Issue regarding this.
Even am facing the same issue. But did not see any solution from you. Can you please post the solution to this issue.
I have the same problem. Could you provide the answer as Pawan Keshari said he whould do 4 years ago?
Hello , which version of FM are you using?
