Subject: Re: DITA 1.2 Subject Schema

I have copied your request to the full mailing list of the DITA TC, Bradley. The Subject Schema has had limited uptake in general, but some have implemented it with seeming success and value, but I can't recall by whom. If anyone on copy can help Bradley with any experience at all, please chime in!

I suggest also that you ask on the Yahoo Groups dita-users list, where many other possible users of that specialization may lurk. For example, it has this thread you might research:

Dear OASIS DITA committee,


I am trying to build a DITA Subject Schema for a Telco Product.


Do you have a working example of the subject schema with all the associated instance files that could be put on the web as a resource?


I have 3 years’ experience building OWL knowledge Models, but the DITA subject Schema has me stumped. All I have seen is very flat examples on the DITA 1.2 Spec page. It is hard to tell how it is actually built. When I build my OWL ontologies in TopBraid Composer, the application hides most of the “guts” of the code so I do not have to reverse engineer it. I use XMetal 6.0 as my XML editor and I cannot replicate the same structures ie it wants to introduce a new topic reference for “hasInstance”.


As well, I am looking to bring DITA into an OWL ontology but the fragmentation of the DTDs compared to DITA 1.1 has made it almost impossible. I am in particular looking for the file that specifies all the bookmap and topic prolog info. From that, my goal is to build the subsumption and association relationships. This may be the wrong approach, but without more resources (eg live examples) describing how to manage metadata, it is hard to figure out the correct approach.
