Subject Re: org.apache.fop.pdf.PDFFunction Type 3 Stitching function

Hi Clifton,
the type 3 stitching function in PDF is not what you believe it is. It
is used for color transformation, not for stitching multiple PDFs

I have no problem generating 20k+ pages PDF documents with FOP as long
as I separate individual subdocuments by fo:page-sequence. There can be
problems if your individual page-sequences get very large. You may want
to search the mailing list archives for "OutOfMemoryError" to get lots
of tips to handle these situations.


You may also want to look at the new intermediate format available in
FOP Trunk which can help to concatenate multiple documents:
