Subject Embedding fonts
Date Wed, 02 Jul 2008 14:07:23 GMT

Hi,

I have a problem with embedding fonts while running Apache FOP within a
web application. This seems to be caused by a problem with reading the
font metrics from a jar file.

Obviously FOP can read the configuration from the jar, it also doesn't
complain while starting: 

2008-07-02 10:04:04,651 DEBUG

Also embedding images from the same jar isn't a problem, but using the
font leads to trouble, the error message in the logfile is:

2008-07-02 10:04:14,068 ERROR org.apache.fop.fo.FOTreeBuilder
(FOTreeBuilder.java:229)  - javax.xml.transform.TransformerException:
java.lang.RuntimeException: Cannot load font: failed to create Source from
metrics file
jar:file:/var/lib/cm4all/tomcat6/base/billy/webapps/CMAdmin/WEB-INF/lib/CMBilling-0.0.1-SNAPSHOT.jar!/layouts/LIVINGNET_2008_06_05/fonts/ttfnewsgothic.xml

Running FOP having the font metrics as a normal file works perfectly,
but for productive usage this isn't very helpful.

I would be very grateful, if someone has an idea to get this working!

Kind regards,
Thomas
