Subject Re: FO + External bitmap graphics -> FOP -> SVG

Don't be shy! This is actually quite easy. It just took the following
lines to hack that missing feature in. Just place the code snippet below
in SVGRenderer in the method renderImageArea() right after the commented
call to graphics.drawImage().

                    Element imageElement = svgDocument.createElementNS(svgNS, "image");
                    imageElement.setAttribute("x", Integer.toString(startx));
                    imageElement.setAttribute("y", Integer.toString(starty));
                    imageElement.setAttribute("width", Integer.toString(endx - startx));
                    imageElement.setAttribute("height", Integer.toString(starty - endy));
                    imageElement.setAttributeNS(null, "xlink:href", url.toString());

...and suddenly you have images. Somewhat dirty hack but it works here.
The only problem might be the format of the URLs because a relative URL
in the FO document is automatically expanded based on the baseURL. So
you get an absolute URL in any case.

Your work-around will also work.

Please don't assume just because a feature hasn't been implemented it is
extremely difficult to implement. The SVG renderer is just a nice
addition to FOP. It's not one of our main renderers so it may not be so
well maintained. This is open source. If a feature is missing, implement
it! :-)
