The XML Documentation for Adobe Experience Manager has several features and countless benefits to support a powerful component content management system within Adobe Experience Manager (AEM). This add-on enables AEM to handle Darwin Information Typing Architecture-based (DITA-based) content creation and delivery seamlessly, providing a single CMS to manage marketing and technical content all under one platform.
Out of the multitude of features supported by this add-on, the one-touch experience of publishing all of the technical content to multiple publishing channels is widely sought out by technical authors and publishers. The features encompassed with this best-in-class functionality of the XML Add-on, referred to above as XML Documentation for Adobe Experience Manager, enable content-authors to deliver rich content experiences to end-users.
These publishing features are enabled by the widely-used open source publishing engine, the DITA Open Toolkit (DITA-OT). The XML Add-on solution is shipped out-of-the-box (OOTB) with a default DITA-OT plug-in and can publish the DITA-based content in the most popular formats–AEM Sites, PDF, HTML5, and EPUB.
In this blog, we’ll briefly review publishing to one of the above formats (AEM Sites) and take you through some of the steps and configurations needed to customize the XML Add-on to support this publishing.
