Subject Re: SVG into Java Image
Date Wed, 23 Jun 2004 20:03:08 GMT

My suggestion is to read the Java Graphics 2D information you need from 
the GVT tree.

Once you load a SVGDocument into a JSCGComponent (you do not need a 
canvas to access the GVT), you can access the GVT by adding a 
GVTTreeBuilderListener to your SVGComponent, in the gvtBuildCompleted 

Once you have the GVT tree, you can walk through it, and retrieve the 
Graphics2D representation of your SVG file.

I use this method to feed a DXF exporter Library that requires Graphics 
2D objects to transform into DXF and it works perfectly.


public SomeMethod() {

             JSVGComponent  svg = new JSVGComponent();

SVGDocumentLoaderAdapter() {
                 public void 
documentLoadingStarted(SVGDocumentLoaderEvent e) {
                 public void 
documentLoadingCompleted(SVGDocumentLoaderEvent e) {
             svg.addGVTTreeBuilderListener(new GVTTreeBuilderAdapter() {
                 public void gvtBuildStarted(GVTTreeBuilderEvent e) {
                 public void gvtBuildCompleted(GVTTreeBuilderEvent e) {
		// Now the tree is ready, we have to walk through it
                     GVTTreeWalker tw = new 
                     GraphicsNode node = tw.firstChild();

                     // Walk through the tree to locate and extract the 
Graphics info you want.


             try {
             catch(Exception e){
                 System.out.println("Could not load SVG file into 
Component.  "+e);
