      Hi all,

      Here is a method to generate a PDF document using FOP. The userconfig.xml is
      modified to use arial.xml and arial.ttc. Notes that I have use font arial in
      the style sheet template.

      public void generatePDF(File xslTemplate, File xmlDataFile, File
      throws IOException, FOPException, TransformerException {

      Driver driver = new Driver();

      Logger logger = new NullLogger();


      File foFile = null;

      OutputStream out = null;
      FileInputStream fin = null;
      try {
      out = new java.io.FileOutputStream(outputFile);

      foFile = merge(xslTemplate, xmlDataFile);
      fin = new FileInputStream(foFile);
      driver.setInputSource(new InputSource(fin));

      } catch (IOException ioe) {
      throw ioe;
      } catch (TransformerException te) {
      throw te;
      } finally {
      if (out != null) try {
      } catch (IOException e) {
      if (fin != null) try {
      } catch (IOException e) {

      THEN, I CONFIGURED FONTS IN THE conf\userconfig.xml



      baseDir: normally the base directory is the directory where the fo file is

      located. if you want to specify your own, uncomment this entry.

      This value can also be a URL. Actually, the value is converted to

      a URL.







      fontBaseDir: Similar to baseDir, except that this value is used for fonts.

      it isn't specified, the value from baseDir is used.
