Hi Stefano I had a similar problem but found the answer in the archives (search on 'sequence and pdf) - you need to break up the input into several page sequences. At least this has enabled me to produce a 600 page document which previously ran out of memory at 50 pages.

Hi all, I'm trying to produce a 235 pages and over 40 gif images PDF file (each image is about over 150K). When I run fop, I receive the following message: rendering areas to PDF writing out PDF Exception in thread "main" java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: at org.apache.fop.pdf.PDFBinaryStream.encode(PDFBinaryStream.java:96) at org.apache.fop.pdf.PDFXObject.output(PDFXObject.java:109) at org.apache.fop.pdf.PDFDocument.output(PDFDocument.java:970) at org.apache.fop.render.pdf.PDFRenderer.render(PDFRenderer.java:183) at org.apache.fop.apps.Driver.render(Driver.java:444) at org.apache.fop.apps.CommandLine.run(CommandLine.java:154) at org.apache.fop.apps.CommandLine.main(CommandLine.java:249) I reserved 400Mb for jvm, but it doesn't seems to be enough, and I can't reserve other memory for my process (the server I'm using is a developing server, so many other apps need memory). Can anobody give me a suggestion? Thanks all Stefano
