Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-1992) Upgrade to DITA Open Toolkit version 1.3
Date Thu, 14 Feb 2008 00:37:08 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-1992?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12568771#action_12568771

Michelle Caisse commented on DERBY-1992:

Unfortunately, I've hit a dead end on this issue due to licensing problems. Upgrading to DITA-OT
1.4.1 would not provide indexes because (1) indexes are not available for XHTML docs and (2)
the PDF index generation depends on software that, though it has a free personal license,
that license is not consistent with use within Apache (or any other organization, for that
matter.) (Andrew mentioned this problem in email to derby-dev on 16 Nov 07.) 

Laura raised the issue of indexing support on the DITA Help forum (http://sourceforge.net/forum/message.php?msg_id=4127959)
and by my reading of the response, getting a solution with a reasonable license doesn't look

DITA 1.4.1 does come with an Apache license. There is no longer a separate download for an
Apache licensed toolkit. I haven't yet succeeded in creating pdf with 1.4.1. If there is any
reason to upgrade given that we will not get indexes, I can pursue this.
