DITA Open Toolkit 2.2

The DITA Open Toolkit, or DITA-OT for short, is a set of Java-based, open-source tools that provide processing for XML content authored in the Darwin Information Typing Architecture.

Note: While the DITA standard is owned and developed by OASIS, the DITA Open Toolkit project is governed separately. DITA-OT is an independent, open-source implementation of the DITA standard.
