I have also noticed that doing the XML to FO to PDF in memory as opposed to writing to disk reduces time by about 80% in the samples that I tried.
 
I was using iTEXT, XEP, FOP, RTF2FO etc.
 
Below you say that a 56 page PDF from XML files takes about 2 minutes. That sounds really good - I was working with 2 pages and 2 XML files generating FO doing an XSLT transform to merge and coverting to PDF and that was taking me about 1.5 minutes on a 333MHZ machine.
 
I was just curoius what the total sizes of the XML, the FOs and the PDF were. Did you concate the FOs? how did you get a single PDF (what tool)?

Just curious - what are the sizes of the XML, FO and PDF files?

How to decrease the responding time of converting from XML to PDF ? Currently it took me about 2 Mins to generate my 56 page PDF from XML files. Is that possible to convert from XML to PDF without the intermediate stage of FO format ?


Thanks,
Jie

There are no chapter_title or sub formatting objects in xsl-fo, you have to
transform it in xslt to fo objects, like <fo:inline> rather than just copying
them to the fo.
