I'm using Oxygen XML Author plugin for Eclipse (fully functional 30 day trial), and I want to convert (transform) sample Eclipse help file plugin to epub or PDF, to be able to view in on my ereader.
Eclipse help plugin is actually in DITA format (it's stored in ZIP archive with accompanied helper files for identification on Eclipse platform) and hopefully Oxygen XML Author is able to easily transform it in various formats with right instructions.
However all this XML artillery seems very advanced and hard to comprehend from first try. I tried various things, like validation scenarios, transformation scenarios, applying schemas (all from provided Oxygen framework) but I always get nil result and errors in console
Does anyone have experience with Eclipse help plugin concept and provide assistance as how to do this transformation? I understand that usually users look for a easy way to author Eclipse help plugin and not the other way around - to transform Eclipse help plugin to other format
