FOP's Batik transcoders

The FOP projects provides the following transcoders (output format support for Batik):

  • PDF Transcoder
  • { { { PostScript } } } Transcoder

  • EPS Transcoder (planned)

The source code can be found in HEAD of FOP's CVS module.

Release plan

The PDF transcoder is almost ready to be released. The { { { PostScript } } } transcoder has only recently been setup and isn't ready, yet.

Task list for the release

  • (open, JM) Add a special JAR to the build process that contains all dependencies (ex. Avalon Framework classes)
  • (open) Tag CVS
  • (open) Check and update documentation
  • (open) Make sure the transcoders are advertised on the Batik site

Development notes

General tasks

  • (open) Build a good environment for testing.
  • (open) The package structure may need to be reworked. The PDF transcoder is in org.apache.fop.svg, the PS transcoder in org.apache.fop.render.ps.

PDF transcoder


  • type 1 PDF patterns don't work (blank output)

{ { { PostScript } } } transcoder


  • Stroke widths are wrong, need fixing
  • Bitmap support

EPS transcoder

Will be based on the { { { PostScript } } } transcoder.
