Sure. I will reply in private. (I am not sure I could quote from what I read
in public without violating the license agreement I accepted when
downloading the demo of the product)

Hi Peter - 

Out of curiosity, may I get the name(s) of the other xsl-fo processors that
may be able to do this with an existing PDF? 

Thanks!

RE: Use PDF as input source for FOP

 


 

 




Apologies for jumping in on this thread, but I have a similar requirement,
that is, a pdf is delivered to us which we want to embed in fop, much like
one would embed a jpg. 

  

I understand fop does not support that today, but does anybody have ideas on
what it might take to implement that? Note that I have the impression that
other xsl-fo processors do support such a feature. 

  

Thanks, 

  

Peter

Thank you, Dirk...we do use iText for some of our applications...I'll get
with our developers that are using iText to find out more and I'll check out
the URL you listed. 

Thanks again.

Hi,

what you want can be done with itext.
www.lowagie.com/*iText*/

fop can only create pdfs with some like xml:fo as source.
