The CADDY-xml converter is a conversion software that transforms dossier from the legacy format CADDY V2 into CADDY-xml dossiers. Please note that the software has not been updated since 2010, so issues with current Windows versions are possible. Please convert all legacy dossiers asap and update your publication software to generate CADDY-xml directly.
The screenshot below shows the user interface of the CADDY-xml converter during operation.
The CADDY-xml converter generates CADDY-xml dossiers using the outdated XSD with version 3.0.0, so the resulting dossiers can be considered to be compliant with the XSD of version 3.0.0. There is no conversion software to convert the dossiers into a current XSD reflecting the latest changes of the CADDY-xml format specification.
Please note that the CADDY converter comes with a bundled embedded browser-based CADDY-xml viewer of version 3.0.5. The viewer may be updated with a later version by exchanging the viewer files in the utils subdirectory of the submission package with a later viewer. Please keep the existing XSD file in the utils directory. However the eSubmission viewer with version 02.02.00 and later displays CADDY-xml dossiers with its own viewer module by default and then ignores the embedded browser-based viewer module, so there is no mor need to modify the embedded viewer version.
