Am I the only one having problems with including images when running FOP
as part of a J2EE application?
When running FOP stand alone, I can specify the path to my image as per
normal, but when Im running FOP as part of my application I get output
that boils down to that I havent specified a base directory.
Now, going through the API I find no way of setting FOP:s base directory
at runtime, neither how to turn off logging.

Could someone help me out?

It would be awesome if I could give FOP an Image or a byte[] directly,
but just getting file: or url: to work when its part of an application
would do for now.

I haven't tested what you do, but I think you should be able to specify
a full URL with parameters and all in the "src" attribute of
"external-graphic" that will call your servlet to get the image. Or do
you get any error messages?
