Subject Re: Using FOP in an applet ?
Date Wed, 06 Feb 2002 15:14:06 GMT
Embeding FOP in an applet would make your applet humongous. It would only 
be possible in a LAN configuration with high band-width.

I think the best way would be to allow a server side pdf generation with 
fop that would be used by your applet.

Hope that helps
