Compound datatypes

2001-09-21 Thread Peter B. West
Sirs, I find the definition of compound datatypes very confusing. Fom an implementation point of view, I find myself treating the compound types not as datatypes but as another form of shorthand, whose major difference from the existing shorthand properties is in the handling of inheritance.

2001-09-21 Thread Keiron Liddle
The logging used by fop has been changed to use a more common logging library, logkit. You just need to set the logger on the Driver, ie. driver.setLogger(logger); To see how to create a logger look at the getLogger method in the Driver, and read up at jakarta.apache.org. This information will

Performance and java 1.1

Hi All, I have been doing some performance testing so we can get an idea of how things might be improving (or getting worse) with changes to the code. There are three types of tests. I have used 6 fo documents that are generated 500 times. - for each document a new jvm is started, so 3000

Yes. See attached JSP. Without a parameter it reads static XML file and displays it in HTML format, with 'fo' parameter it reads the .fo file and displays PDF, and also has a link to display static XML as PDF. It's easy to modify this to read external XML file and output PDF. It used to work

I would add to the consensus here ... I believe that requiring Java 2 collection classes is more than reasonable, particularly for this project. I'm not sure that anyone is going to have much success deploying bleeding edge technologies like XSL:FO if they are trapped in a 2-3 year old Java

David, I don't think it was in 0.19.0, which is consistent with the error message. The reason for the infinite loop may well be that some group of rows which are held together by spans is too big to fit on the page. This is a known bug, and I'm not currently working on it, as it's not that easy

You could try using getOutputStream and then building your own Writer by putting on an encoding. The IllegalState is because you can't use the Writer and the OutputStream in the same servlet. But it seems to me if you've already written something to the output and the FOP output is appended on to
