Hi Alexios, Thank you for your reply!
Do you remember a few keywords of the thread subject you mentioned? This would be helpfull. Some more informations where I try to integrate the fop-pdf-images plug-in: It is a XML-RPC-server which, among other functions (lucene index and search etc.), does the transformation of an xml-fo file to pdf. In order to have all needed libraries (jars) within the resulting server jar, the build.xml file unrars all needed jars (including fop, xmlgraphics, batik, avalon,...) into a temporary directory and packs them afterwards into a single jar. As some jars include additional files within the META-INF directory (eg. the services directory), all those files get mixed up in the resulting META-INF directory and are (potentially) overwritten by subsequent files with the same name during the unrar process. As you said that simply adding the fop-pdf-images.jar to the classpath of your JBoss application with the embedded fop worked, I now suspect that the above build method (unraring all and pack again) breaks the plug-in mechanism. To blame (or not?) the used software: it is the java ilServer from the ILIAS e-Lerning platform (http://www.ilias.de). If anyone has a comment: you're very welcome! Regards Dietrich Hi Dietrich, The FOP pdf images plugin works well for me when using FOP as an embedded library that runs inside an application server (JBoss). It only required to put the fop-pdf-images.jar in the classpath, no code changes. With big volumes (thousands of pages per output PDF), we have noticed that it takes time to open in Adobe Reader and to rip it on production printing servers. In the past few months, there was an interesting thread with technical information related to why this is happening. If you don't have big volumes, it is working really well.
