Who are the developers of FOP.


How do I ask to get a multithreaded version of FOP, or get that on the
requirements list. I could probably do it, but it needs to be maintained.

When I last browsed in the source code (0.20.2 I think), I had the
impression
that FOP (at least when seen as a whole) was not explicitely designed to be
thread-safe.

The class Configuration keeps its data in static Hashtables, so you will at
least
share the FOP configuration between threads. This may (or may not) be the
only thing.

I stumpled upon this while figuring out how to run fop repeatedly without
restarting
a VM each time.

Hope this helps,
