Subject Re: Running fop in memory

You might want to check out our standard servlet. It should be easily
deployed in a web container such as Tomcat or Jetty. When you've done
that you can probably (haven't done this myself) use a simple HTTP
command-line client to create and fetch your PDFs. That way, you start a
server that has FOP warmed up in memory and will allow you to create
your PDFs a lot faster.

See documentation at:

Tomcat can be found here:

I hope this helps.
