Adjusting file names in map-first pre-processing

To dynamically adjust the names and locations of output files in the map-first pre-processing routine (preprocess2), you can create a custom plug-in and specify the code that contains your custom rewrite rules.

For example, set the result.rewrite-rule.xsl parameter to specify a bundled XSLT stylesheet that contains your custom rewrite rules.

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<project name="com.example.rewrite.pdf">
  <target name="dita2rewrite.pdf.init">
    <property name="customization.dir"
    <property name="result.rewrite-rule.xsl" 
  <target name="dita2rewrite.pdf"
          depends="dita2rewrite.pdf.init, dita2production.pdf, dita2pdf2"/>

Your plug-in would also include a custom-rules.xsl file, which might contain templates like this to move all image files to an images subdirectory:

<xsl:template match="node() | @*">
    <xsl:apply-template select="node() | @*"/>

<xsl:template match="file[@format = 'image']/@result">
  <xsl:attribute name="{local-name()}" select="concat('images/', .)"/>
If your rewrite rules are contained in a Java class, you can set the result.rewrite-rule.class parameter instead, and pass the name of your Java class in the @value attribute. The custom class should implement the org.dita.dost.module.RewriteRule interface.
