I´ve been trying to do some xml --> pdf transformation using FOP.
When I run FOP manually everything is wonderful, but i don´t seem to really
understand how to embeed it in a running app.
The problem is with the input Source ..
I have both the xml file and the xsl file as org.w3c.dom.Document and I
don´t seem to be able to use them as input for the transformation.
I´ll post a code snippet to make myself clear
Driver driver = new Driver();
driver.setRenderer( Driver.RENDER_PDF );
driver.setInputSource( new DocumentInputSource( xsl ) );
This won't work. THe driver expects a FO document at this
point, no XSLT.
(http://xml.apache.org/fop/embedding.html), the problem is.. I seem to be
setting an XSL file as an input... so where do I set the XML Document as an
You need an XSLT transformer.
Something like this:
Driver driver =new Driver();
Check the package javax.xml.transform and subpackages.
I´ve been digging thru the fop api and found out this class XSLTransform
wich seems to take an XLM doc, and a XSL file as inputs and outputs a
org.w3c.dom.Document, but again.. I can´t input the XSL as a document...
there are any workarounds to this problems?...
or maybe some ideas?
Thanks for all your help!
