MH updated FOP-2495:
--------------------
    Description: 
Because of bug FOP-2177 we couldn't upgrade form FOP 1.0 to FOP 1.1. FOP 2.0 
has solved this bug (tested with standalone FOP scripts).

Now we would like to upgrade from FOP 1.0 to FOP 2.0. The Upgrading page 
(https://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/2.0/upgrading.html) says "You should 
encounter very few issues in upgrading from FOP 1.0, except as noted in the 
following: ...". The truth is completely different: starting by replacing 
fop.jar, our code gets dozens of compiler errors! Many methods are simply gone:

FopFactory.newInstance()
FoUserAgent.setBaseURL(String);
FopFactory.getFontManager().setFontBaseURL(String)
FopFactory.setURIResolver(URIResolver);
etc.

The javadocs from 1.1 to 2.0 simple changed - no deprecated methods, no hints 
how to replace old methods.

The FOP 2.0 embedding page 
(https://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/2.0/embedding.html) just shows simple 
examples to start from the ground. I can't find any migration help how to 
replace old code. 

E.g. how can I set the font base? 
FopFactory.getFontManager().setFontBaseURL(String) is gone and I can't find any 
equivalent code for FOP 2.0!

This is a major bug in FOP 2.0 as API changes are not documented to upgrade 
from FOP 1.x Java API to FOP 2.0!

Now I just can search and try and experiment if I get our old code somehow 
running with all those undocumented API changes. Can you please state a 
migration documentation for all methods (method signatures) that don't exist 
anymore? We can't start coding all over again from scratch. Thank you very much!
