Authoring Eclipse Help Using DITA
This page contains information about how to use DITA for authoring Eclipse Help.
DITA is an XML format designed especially for authoring Help information. Several WTP components have DITA-based Help, but up until know, the DITA source has not been checked into CVS. Instead the generated HTML has been checked in and privately kept in synch with the DITA source. The main reason for this cumbersome process is that the tools to process DITA have been proprietary. But all that has changed with the availability of the DITA Open Toolkit (DIAT-OT) project at SourceForge. Now there is a freely available toolkit so anyone can author using DITA.
The initial DITA Help source has been attached to bug 131837.
