Mapfile Bookmap Sample

 Table of Contents


1. Summary

This sample compares two DITA bookmap files in1.bookmap and in2.bookmap, it does not compare the referenced topics. Because of this, the topic files are not included in the sample. Please read the content of the DITA markup result (results/dita-markup.bookmap) as it is designed to illustrate several of our DITA comparison product's features.

The sample uses either .NET or Java versions of DITA Compare, according to the version downloaded, samples for both platforms are covered here.

1.1. Output Format

The result of this comparison depends on the selected output format, as discussed in the Output Formats Section of the Reference, the formats used in this sample are given in the table in the Reference.

1.2. Lexical Preservation

The sample scripts (batch-file or ant) also set two parameters, to preserve the lexical formatting of the source document.
