Understanding FOP documentation

2002-03-05 Thread Peter B. West
Cyril Rognon has been tracking Keiron's notes on Understanding FOP, and keeping me up to date with them. I am about to send him some minor corrections. However, neither Cyril nor I have access to the CVS for update. Keiron is busy with other things, so I would to be able to direct Cyril's

Polly, You are not the first, nor will you be the last, to be thrown by this. All of the work of the Options object is done in the constructor. You don't have to do anything more with it. It sets up a lot of static data, accessible by static methods, in a Configuration class. Have a look

Serialization

Dear Fops, I'm naïve about serialization (among other things.) Can anyone tell me whether it is possible to serialize an instance of an inner class without implicitly serializing the containing class instance? Peter - To

from-nearest-specified-value on compounds

2002-03-13 Thread Peter B. West
Fops and others, What's the opinion on whether an assignment to a compound qualifies for from-nearest-specified-value() on one of the components? My attitude would be that it does qualify because of the implicit assignment to the component. Peter

Nicola, I think there are a few issues to be considered here. Essentially, what is FOP? There may be a number of requirements of an XSL-FO processor. The basic one is, Show me this on a page or screen. Any kind of renderer, using any approach whatsoever, will achieve this, more or less.

Bertrand, Aside from my low opinion of SAX for process coupling, there should be no need for communication back from the renderer. The Area Tree should just give orders to the renderer. All of the layout decisions have been made by the time the Area Tree is constructed. The feedback is

Area tree - renderer

2002-03-16 Thread Peter B. West
My comments earlier about the area tree and page description languages have started me thinking about the topic. The way I see it, there's no daylight between the area tree and the renderer(s). I was talking about the output from the area tree being a PDL, but Postscript and PDF are page
