I guess it is better to build them as XML documents and use xsl:fo to transform them to FO documents. It is much easier. You could use the XML to render HTML, RTF or any other format. FOP programming is also much easier, as you shift all the java programming burden of building the FO document

Hi Ismaeil, I think Bhawana suggested: DB-JDBC-XML-XSL-FO-FOP-PDF, this includes the additional xml document representation, but puts the XSL:FO instructions outside your java, which would by bypassed by java generated FO documents (your below mentioned construction) It probably boils down to an

I recommend you don't build XSL:FO through Java code directly. Produce a simple XML format with just the data in it. Use a XSLT stylesheet afterwards to convert the XMl to XSL:FO. It sounds like a lot of work, but you're actually going to save time. For example, if your layout has to change you

My guess is table-footer is working exactly as intended. Are you sure you don't want to use a page footer? Something that always gets placed at the bottom of a page? If so, look into using xsl-region-after fo:root xmlns:fo=http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format; fo:layout-master-set
