Glenn Adams created FOP-2266:
Summary: Use ICU for line break determination.
Issue Type: Improvement
Affects Versions: trunk
Reporter: Glenn Adams
Assignee: Glenn Adams
FOP uses a somewhat dated, internal implementation
(org.apache.fop.text.linebreak) of UAX14 for determining line break
opportunities. Now that FOP supports complex scripts like Thai, etc., where
more advanced line break support apply, such as dictionary driven tables, FOP
should transition to using a more standard, industry accepted library such as
ICU, which is already used by a number of Apache projects for other purposes,
e.g., by PDFBox, Xerces, and Xalan.
