.ditaval File Extension

Developer: International Standards Organization
File type: DITA Conditions File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .ditaval. Files with the file extension .ditaval can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .ditaval files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .ditaval file?

Data files called DITA conditions files are saved using the DITAVAL encoding format, and these DITAVAL files are associated to the content found in corresponding DITA documents. These DITAVAL files are affixed with the .ditaval extension and are mainly implemented for the filtration of data topics stored in associated DITA documents. Conditional rules or codes comprise the content of these DITAVAL files, specifically for the inclusion or exclusion of certain data topics stored in the associated DITA files. "DITA" in .dita documents stands for Darwin Information Typing Architecture, and these are text documents containing structured technical data encoded with XML-based standards. These DITA documents are used for authoring and publishing scientific materials. The DITAVAL format was developed by International Standards Organization, while the DITA format is from OASIS. Users of computers running on Microsoft Windows-based systems can use certain text editing applications to open and view the content of these DITAVAL files, and Microsoft Notepad is an example of these text editors implemented with support for these DITAVAL files.

how to open a .ditaval file?

Launch a .ditaval file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .ditaval file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .ditaval files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .ditaval file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .ditaval file will open the correct application.

applications that open a .ditaval file

Eclipse with XMLBuddy plug-in

Eclipse with XMLBuddy plug-in

XMLBuddy is an Extensive Markup Language editor, which is an Eclipse Integrated Development Environment Plug-in. This is a free (General Public license) software that gives syntax colors and adds templates to new XML document projects and DTD (Document Type Definition) presentations. This software edits XML, XHTML, XSD (with the help of syntax coloring), and DTD, which is a controlled validation software or XML schema. This software can also make DTDs from documents that are in XLM. This software has the feature to update dynamic outline views as well as improved support for automatically detecting XML encoding specifications. This plugin also supports XSLT and RELAX NG Compact syntax, and there is also a default schema that is applicable in the namespace or the root. The auto validation will show errors while the user edits the background parse's base. XMLBuddy can be installed (just like any other Eclipse plug-in) by unzipping it into \eclipse\plugins in the Eclipse directory.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .ditaval files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .ditaval. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
