Subject RE: Need help calling FOP correctly
Date Tue, 30 Aug 2016 14:23:43 GMT
Thank you for the reply.

What I would really like to do is to bypass the XML input that FOP normally uses and call
the FOP Java methods from our framework directly in order to produce a PostScript file.  Checking
examples online I didn’t have a configuration file.  I’m thinking now that I need one
to define the fonts.  At this point I am just trying to get 1 line of text to come out in
the PS file.  Here is my code.

                              OutputStream output = new FileOutputStream("C:/snapshotviews/sts-workspace-3.7/billing-document-system/bds-service/src/test/resources/Products/Paper/xmlgraphicsTest.ps");
                              PSGenerator psGenerator = new PSGenerator(output);
                              // Setup
                              FopFactory fopFactory = FopFactory.newInstance(new File(".").toURI());
                              FOUserAgent foUserAgent = fopFactory.newFOUserAgent();
                              IFContext context = new IFContext(foUserAgent);
                              PSDocumentHandler psDocumentHandler = new PSDocumentHandler(context);
                              // Stuff the Fonts in the class
FontInfo fontInfo = new FontInfo();
fontInfo.addFontProperties("header", "Helvetica", "normal", 0);
                              // Create the top of the PostScript file
                              // Loop through the pages
                              PSPainter ifPainter = psDocumentHandler.startPageContent();
                              // Set up the font for the text
                              IFState ifState = IFState.create();
                              // Write the text to the PostScript file
                              ifPainter.drawText(100, 500, 2, 5, null, "PDF Text");

                              // Wrap up

Thank you,

We need more info about how do you using FOP. What is in FOP config?
Can you show us your used config, and small piece from your code which loads or sets the config?

Hi all,

At work we have a Java framework that I need to hook in with FOP.  So I need our framework
to call the appropriate FOP classes.methods to produce a PostScript file.  I have it producing
a PostScript file but I am having trouble with fonts.

What do I need to call to get a font, Helvetica or Times New Roman, etc, loaded into PSDocumentHandler
correctly so that when I call PSPainter.drawText the text appears in the PostScript file?
 Right now I am getting the Font not available exception.

Thank you,
