Hey Helder,

Thanks for your reply. I will not have the time to play with that in the next week, but I will follow up with you!
It's correct, that you only need the metadata, but we still need to make sure that all the dependencies are set correctly.
I will have a look at the dependencies graph as soon as possible.

Thanks for your help!

OK, I took a quick look at what's involved and it seems all that it's
necessary is appending metadata to the manifest [1].

Great, that means you already have the knowledge. Could you please
file a bug [2] so that we can try to address this in the shipped jars
for the next release? If possible attaching a patch and/or which
proposed metadata you had in mind. Thanks.

1) No. Recently, bmargulies has helped adding Batik to maven, but
apparently it was compiled with JDK 1.6 [3].
2) Maybe. Batik provides a dependency graph [4], although it's a bit outdated.
