Subject Re: configuration for FOP
Date Fri, 03 Mar 2006 10:41:27 GMT
You'd better download the latest release: 0.91beta.

ATM, the FOPServlet does not support a configuration file. The servlet
is mainly a starting point and an example for people who want to build a
servlet for production use. It is recommended that you copy the source
code and adjust it to your needs.

Note that this example servlet is susceptible to denial-of-service
attacks due to the unchecked use of filename in the parameters. It
should not be used in production, except maybe in-house, but certainly
not on a public server.

Since you want to convert HTML to PDF you'll have to adjust the servlet
anyway. FOP only supports XSL-FO as input, so you have to run your HTML
to a converter first to get XSL-FO.
