I've considering embedding FOP is a product I'm developing.
How stable and complete is the puppy?

One of my clients found it stable enough to process 300,000+ bills per 
month. And it's complete enough for said client to do what it needs to 
do. Many of the areas which are not complete (e.g., keep-*, etc.) have 
workarounds which can be implemented. All development has moved away 
from the 'release' Maintenance version (fop-0.20.5) in favor of the CVS 
TRUNK version (fop-1.0) to ensure all available resources go towards 
the re-design. We welcome constructive assistance (i.e., HELP WANTED!! 
:-p).

For more information about what's complete and what isn't, check out 
the FOP Compliance page[1], which identifies 'level of compliance' (for 
lack of a better term).

Good luck! and Welcome!

Continuing with the positive news I have a client who uses fop embedded 
(within tomcat as well as a custom server application) since many years. We 
have produced well over 4 million PDF files using fop in this embedded mode 
without problems.
