Do you have multiple JVMs installed, or have you recently added the release version of JDK 1.4? I had a similar set of problems early this week. When I uninstalled JDK 1.3, and re-installed it, I was able to get FOP building and running again with 1.3. I had been experiencing strange errors

Hi Peter snip/ Now, I think you're really start mixing things. I strongly recommend to separate configuration (as the filename says) and processing instructions. What you want to do means creating a new userconfig.xml for each call to FOP. This is much easier using the command line (and
