Glenn Adams created FOP-2266:

             Summary: Use ICU for line break determination.
                 Key: FOP-2266
             Project: Fop
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: page-master/layout
    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.
