When I generate Eclipse Help from Astoria, the resulting plugin somtimes
references org.dita.dost.contentProducer in plugin.xml, which prevents the
Eclipse Help plugin from loading.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
<plugin name="Schnelleinstieg für die Lizenzierung"
id="com.xxx.proddoc.productname.DE" version="1.0" provider-name="DITA">
<requires>
<import plugin="org.dita.dost.contentProducer" />
</requires>
<extension point="org.eclipse.help.toc">
<toc file="GettingStartedLicensing.xml" primary="true" />
</extension>
<extension point="org.eclipse.help.contentProducer">
<contentProducer producer="org.dita.dost.ContentProducer" />
</extension>
</plugin>

When I remove <requires>.....</requires> and the extension point for
org.dita.dost.contentProducer, the plugin loads just fine. Can anyone tell
me what this contentProducer is?

Hi Mike,

Do you know if you are using DITA XML to author your help in Astoria?

My understanding is that org.dita.dost identifier is from the DITA Open
Toolkit. (For example, "dost" is probably the acronym for DITA Open
Source Toolkit.)

The DITA Open Toolkit is a SourceForge project. I believe in an earlier
release of the DITA Open Toolkit, they were working on an enhancement
that would allow creating an Eclipse doc plug-in that would allow the
content files as the XML format, instead of the XHTML format. That
enhancement would have leveraged the Eclipse help system's content
producer extension point.

However, I don't think the enhancement was fully developed, and that's
why you are seeing the symptoms you are seeing.

You might learn more by searching the forums, or ask the question about
org.dita.dost.contentProducer at the DITA Open Toolkit SourceForge
forums. Here is a link to that project:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/dita-ot/

and use the "Forums" link.

I did a quick search on contentProducer in those forums, and only found
this hit circa spring 2007:
http://sourceforge.net/forum/message.php?msg_id=4204301

They also have mailing lists, which might have more information.

Hope this helps,
Lee Anne
