I already posted in the user group, but they only wonder about my
error and can't help. So I think that it is a bug.
I use Apache FOP 0.95beta but the same error also occured in 0.94
stable version: When trying to make a new instance of the fop
factory with "FopFactory fopFactory = FopFactory.newInstance();" I
get an exception with the following stack trace:
cannot be cast to org.apache.fop.util.ContentHandlerFactory
FWIW, and for all interested parties: Andreas confirmed to me off-
list that using only one FopFactory seems to work. So far, he hasn't
taken that back, so I'm assuming no news is good news. ;-)
This shows that using only one factory is not merely a matter of
'best practice', it avoids ugly exceptions like the one above.
Of course, Big thanks to Jörg for supplying us with the vital piece
