DITAToo DITA CMS Is Now Tightly Integrated with FrameMaker 11

We are happy to announce that DITAToo DITA CMS  is now tightly integrated with FrameMaker 11!

Thanks to the FrameMaker connector that we’ve built, FrameMaker users can now access the DITAToo content repository and work with the files directly from within the FrameMaker user interface. In fact, DITAToo with the FrameMaker connector give you an out-of-the-box integrated solution where you use FrameMaker for DITA authoring and publishing and DITAToo for managing DITA.

We are now preparing a joint webinar with Adobe to show you how the DITAToo FrameMaker connector works. The registration to the webinar will be opened in the next few days. Meanwhile, I want to share with you a few screenshots so you can get an idea of how it works.

First of all, in the FrameMaker’s menu, you go to CMS > Connection Manager. This is where you set up a connection to the DITAToo repository (I faded out the IP address of the server for security reasons):

FrameMaker Connection Manager

Once the connection is established, you can browse the DITAToo content repository in the Repository Manager pane:

You can right click on a topic and use commands in the context menu:

You can open a topic for editing and then, after you finished doing modifications, you can check in the topic back to the repository:

DITAToo Check In
By the way, link management works with the FrameMaker connector exactly in the same way as it works in DITAToo itself. This means that whenever you move or rename a file (you can do it in the Repository Manager pane) or a folder, all cross-references are updated automatically.

We’ll be showing these and other features at our joint webinar with Adobe. Like I said, the registration will be announced soon so stay tuned!
