Stuttgart, Germany, September 19, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- *instinctools GmbH is a European IT firm which is engaged in Eclipse-based applications and plug-ins development for its own self as well as their customers. As a result of their experiences with Eclipse-based development, they felt an urgent need for a documentation tool which could streamline the documentation process in a more systematic way and increase the quality of the documentation. And so they decided to embed Eclipse specific functionalities with full support for Eclipse development in their documentation tool, DITAworks.
The Eclipse module for DITAworks is a direct result of *instinctools’ years of practical Eclipse based development experience. *instinctools has been successfully delivering quality Java and Eclipse based services to varied industrial segments for many years.

There are various strategic reasons why *instinctools has been using Eclipse platform for developing DITAworks itself and focusing on documentation of Eclipse development in DITAworks.
