Is it possible to print XLS, HTML, or RTF reports using Apache FOP? If not, is there another open source or free print server that will do this?. “JFOR, an open source XSL-FO to RTF converter has been integrated into Apache FOP.

Apache™ FOP Output Formats

I typically make use of Apache FOP, see http: The textLPI is the vertical lines per inch to use. In addition to the above values the TIFF renderer configuration allows some additional settings:. Joshua Smith on April 15, Users have reported that the optimal settings to avoid such spacing problems are: One workaround is to use Adobe Acrobat the full version, not the Reader to process the file manually or with scripting that it supports.

Note that not all compression schemes may be available during runtime. The default value for the “language-level” setting is “3”. The mandatory name attribute must refer to an 8 character space padded resource name that must be known in the AFP processing environment.

Apache FOP Output Formats

Thanks for the article, Lucas. The output formats in the sandbox are marked as such below.

FOP does not embed the page segment in the generated file. The include-page-segment extension element can only occur within a simple-page-master. The default value for the “auto-rotate-landscape” setting is “false”. Licensed under Apache License 2. The possible values for the attributes are “inline” and “print-file”. The default value for the “optimize-resources” setting is “false”. Set this to “2” only if you don’t have a Level 3 capable interpreter. But maybe it contains an answer to my question.


The tag-logical-element extension element can appear within a simple-page-master page level or it can appear as child of page-sequence page group level. We’re looking for volunteers to help us implement them.

The approach we took was to allow the end user to create the document layout in MS Word, embedding simple tags to indicate the position of dynamic data elements. It provides good support for most text and layout.

Lucas Jellema on March 22, Apachw found this document a while ago, while searching for a way to go the other direction — from XSL-FO to Word really, to.

This means that the internal page index information is stored near the end of the document. Setting it to “true” will automatically rotate landscape pages and will mark them as landscape. Images and SVG are not fully supported, yet. Some of the formatting supported by XSL-FO, but not by CSS, includes right-to-left and top-to-bottom text, footnotes, margin notes, page apwche in cross-references, and more. This depends on the actual codecs being available.

It is highly likely it appache not supported. The include-page-overlay extension element allows to define on a per simple-page-master basis a page overlay resource. The value of the mandatory src attribute is compared against the value of the src attribute in fo: The include-page-overlay extension element allows to define on a per simple-page-master basis a page overlay resource.

The texts are painted as bitmap much like the Windows PCL drivers do.

apache fop rtf to pdf – Re: RTF and PDF

That was news to me. I’m using fop 2. PPD support is still missing.


It displays one page at a time. Since most network-enabled laser printers support PostScript, try switching to the PostScript printer driver for that printer model. Sign up using Email and Password. The default value for the “transparent-page-background” setting is “false” which paints an opaque, white background for the whole image.

PCL 5 is used for text, raster graphics and rectangular fill graphics.

The default value for the “optimize-resources” setting is “false”. The resource foreign attributes provides the ability to name and control where data object resources e. However, this approach hasn’t been implemented, yet. In this case, all images are converted to bi-level images using IOCA function set 10 FS10 and are enclosed in page-segments since some implementation cannot deal with IOCA objects directly.

This can result in several differences, including actually using different fonts, and apaxhe different font metrics for the same font. Check the iText tutorial and documentation for setting access flags, password, encryption strength and other parameters. Set this to “2” only if you don’t have a Level 3 capable interpreter.

Images are scaled up to the next resolution level supported by PCL 75,, dpi. The Text renderer works with a fixed size page buffer. If a higher number of bits per pixel is configured, FOP has to switch to at least FS11 which may not work everywhere.

It is possible to directly create bitmap images from the individual pages generated by the layout engine.
