Turns out there really is a downside to my approach. I have no way of retrieving the location of fop.jar without resorting to accessing Sun-specific classes (sun.misc.Launcher). Too bad however, that the "Class-Path" approach is also flawed. That's why I actually implemented the dynamic class path approach. > The second problem is that another tool can't refer to fop.jar by putting it > in > the Class-Path entry of its manifest file.

I guess there's no harm if I simply add the Class-Path entry again. The dynamic approach is only triggered if either Batik or Avalon-Framework is not found in the class path.
