Since Batik is an apache open-source project, it's all sample code ;-)

Seriously, the areas where you are most likely to get ideas are
in the org.apache.batik.apps directory, especially in 
subdirectories svgviewer, applet, and rasterizer. 
(please note that the applet code is not thoroughly tested yet - 
and since Batik requires Java2, only browsers with Java2 capability 
or a Java2 plugin can run the applet).

We haven't, to my knowledge, created a detailed documentation plan
yet.  If, after looking at this source code, there are particular areas
where you think more documentation is needed, drop us a line - keeping
in mind that we need contributions of time and effort to add new
If you would like to help write some of this documentation, that's
even better ;-)

Thanks for your support and encouragement!  If there are particular
that you like/dislike, particularly in comparison to other
renderers, we'd be interested to know them.
