+1 While you're at it, we should consider replacing Cocoon's Batik with that from FOP 0.20.5. Building FOP's site with CVS Forrest (fop 0.20.5 + Batik from CVS) results in this error: *  dev/svg/text.svg Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: org.apache.batik.bridge.UnitProcessor.createContext(Lorg/apache/batik/bridge/BridgeContext;Lorg/w3c/dom/Element;)Lorg/apache/batik/util/UnitProcessor$Context; at org.apache.fop.svg.SVGElement.layout(SVGElement.java:218) at org.apache.fop.fo.flow.InstreamForeignObject.layout(InstreamForeignObject.java:251) at org.apache.fop.fo.flow.Block.layout(Block.java:257) at org.apache.fop.fo.flow.AbstractFlow.layout(AbstractFlow.java:154) Apparently this is a symptom of FOP requiring its own version of Batik: http://archives.real-time.com/pipermail/cocoon-users/2003-June/035132.html http://koala.ilog.fr/batik/mlists/batik-dev/archives/msg03372.html When I switch in FOP's Batik, the problem disappears. So I've committed it for Forrest. It's not clear-cut though. Quoting the first referenced email: "This [using FOP's Batik] may have negative impacts on Cocoons SVG serializer though, so you should not use a PDF generating pipeline which uses embedded or referenced SVGs and a SVG generating pipeline at the same time. Cc'ing fop-dev's who better know the pros and cons of this move. --Jeff > > </Steven> > -- > Steven Noels http://outerthought.org/ > Outerthought - Open Source Java & XML An Orixo Member > Read my weblog at http://blogs.cocoondev.org/stevenn/ > stevenn at outerthought.org stevenn at apache.org >
