FrameMaker

Complete new development by itl, the existing docbook5-xml version as a new application in FrameMaker was ported and adapted to the requirements of the layout from Uniserv. The company Uniserv uses including an open source software produced by Talend open data solutions for their products to the data, application, and business process integration. This open source software is integrated into the Uniserv’s own products, which is why the supplied documentation must be adapted by the editors at Uniserv. For this reason a modified docbook application in FrameMaker has been used, based on the supplied documents could be processed. Meanwhile the documentation provided by Talend as docbook5-xml is provided. Since the existing docbook application in FrameMaker on docbook 4.1.2 is based and the transition to docbook5-xml extensive changes required would have made, was the task of itl is to adapt the existing docbook application that docbook5-xml processing is possible without any problems. A short test revealed that a complete New development is easier than an adaptation of the existing docbook application.

Therefore, itl, ported the current docbook5-xml version as a new docbook application in FrameMaker and adapting it to the specific layout requirements of Uniserv documents. In the core, all of the more than 400 docbook5 elements were taken over. However, appropriate text format rules were deposited only for the used items. An extension is possible at any time without problems. The XSLT-pre – and post-processing of the standard docbook enhanced version was also completely redesigned and adapted to docbook5-xml, so the xml output in programs other than FrameMaker can be edited easily.
