This page contains notes about a framework for handling XMP metadata.


Goal

In order to satisfy the PDF/A-1 specification Apache FOP needs a small XMP metadata framework. A generalized framework for XMP could be used inside the whole XML Graphics project and in other projects such as PDFBox.

Existing Efforts

So far, there are no major open source XMP toolkits in Java around. iText has some code and Ben Litchfield's JempBox is another effort. Ben offered to work with us on this.

Requirements

Mandatory

Optional/Future
