Subject Major issue with image loading in FOP 0.95beta
Date Mon, 05 May 2008 15:22:43 GMT
Sorry, I guess in the strictest sense this is xmlgraphics-common related 
now, but it was discovered and investigated using FOP 0.95beta.

We upgraded from 0.94 to use the new bookmarks features and our software 
became globally unstable, hanging randomly during PDF generation -- to 
be precise, getting all kinds of random problems during image loading.
The images we use are stored in SVN and retrieved via their HTTP URLs 
from an SVN server. Reading the SVN logs, we see a very different 
behaviour between 0.94 (which worked fine and has been retested since) 
and 0.95beta: the FOP requests litteraly "suffocate" the SVN server, 
sending quite a lot of requests for images and taking way too long to 
consume the responses. So, after a (random) while, the SVN server gives 
up (timeout) and the FOP application on the other side crashes 
immediately after. At least that is how we understand the problem after 
testing and reading all sorts of server logs (with a sysadmin) for a 
whole day.
This looks like a major regression and makes 0.95beta completely 
unusable for us -- though we badly need the new features :-(

If anybody had an idea, I must say I'd be extremely grateful...
