It may be useless without FOP in your case, but some people might actually want to create the receipts with SVG/Batik instead of XSL-FO/FOP. I simply think you restrict your code too quickly to a certain use case while it could actually be used in a much wider area. > > After all, we won't be able to include > > your renderer in FOP as is, (1) because it's apparently written for FOP > > 0.20.5 > > whose development line has been frozen and (2) your code would need some > > touch-up before we would include it (code style, package name must be > > org.apache.fop.*, no apache license header etc.). > > I posted it with package and header, but is there a doc with coding style > infos > that i can use to touch-up the code? Our code conventions: http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/dev/conventions.html And you can take the existing code as an example. > Which branch i should use? No branch. Use the trunk: http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/xmlgraphics/fop/trunk/ BTW, the license header needs to be the one from the Apache License v2.0, not 1.1. > > > > If I were you, separate this code out into a universally usable component > > that > > can convert bitmaps to output for POS printers and post that somewhere on > > the > > net, for example as SourceForge project.
