Maybe. I didn't try it but I don't see a reason that it shouldn't work as long as you ensure that a Sun Java PlugIn is installed (Microsoft VM? I don't think so.) and the application is running in an intranet. I mention the latter because the loading times for FOP over the internet will be a killer: fop.jar: 1.8MB batik.jar: 2.2MB jimi-1.0.jar: 445MB etc. It's probably better if you provide a server-based solution for creating your documents. On the other side, you always have to transfer the documents, too. And they may be big...
