Hi Thomas,

Thank you for your reply. And sorry about my negative opinion regarding the Batik homesite..:)

I am trying to implement a java application, which produces a graphic, which represents the
different soil layers along a section of topography. For this, I will have to draw paths,
which will be filled with pattern elements.

Later I want to show this graphic in Java panel, and give the user the opportunity to do some
I'll appreciate if you give me some oppinion on the following points;

1- How should I create and fill this SVG document?
2- I already did this by using SVGGraphics2D, draw(generalpath) methods. But I don't know,
how it is possible to fill this path with a predefined pattern like below;  
    <pattern id="pattern1" x="0" y="0" width="15" height="15" 

   <circle cx="6" cy="6" r="5" 
          style="fill: red; stroke:black;" />
I have many other questions in my mind. But for the first time, this is enough. 
Thank you for your help.

    Because the SVGGraphics2D.stream method writes what you have drawn to
the SVGGraphics2D.  Not the Document you give it as a factory.

   Uhh, thanks...

   Perhaps I could help if you could describe what you want to do, I
could help.

   If you just want to serialize a DOM there is no reason to bring
in the SVGGraphics2D (in fact there is no reason to use Batik).
Batik happens to provide a simple XML serializer:

   org.apache.batik.dom.util.DOMUtilities.writeDocument(Document, Writer);
