      Description

      Hi,

      I've a weird problem, I'm using org.apache.fop.svg.PDFTranscoder to generate a

      PDf from an SVG document in xml format, the problem that I'm facing is despite of defining 'pdf-renderer-cfg.xml' in the specified format and configuring the PDFTranscoder with it, PDFTranscoder is not embedding the font into the PDF. In the 'embed-url' I've given actual path to the true type font.

      The contents of 'pdf-renderer-cfg.xml' are :

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
      <pdf-renderer>
      <fonts>
      <font metrics-url="/home/prince/appDir/webapp/lib/Fonts/cursive-standard.xml" kerning="no" embed-url="/home/prince/appDir/webapp/lib/Fonts/Cursive-standard.ttf">
      <font-triplet name="Cursive" style="normal" weight="normal"/>
      </font>
      </fonts>
      </pdf-renderer>

      and to configure the PDF transcoder I've extended org.apache.batik.apps.rasterizer.SVGConverter

      and overridden 'execute' method as :

         public void execute() throws SVGConverterException {
              // Compute the set of SVGConverterSource from the source properties
              // (srcDir and srcFile);
              // This throws an exception if there is not at least one src file.
              Vector sources =  computeSources();
      
              // Compute the destination files from dest
              Vector dstFiles = null;
              if(sources.size() == 1 && dst != null && isFile(dst)){
                  dstFiles = new Vector();
                  dstFiles.addElement(dst);
              }
              else{
                  dstFiles =  computeDstFiles(sources);
              }
             
              //Getting the path of the FOP config file
              String fopPath = UtilProperties.getPropertyValue("fop.properties", "fop.path", "webapp/lib/Fonts");
              File userConfigFile = new File(fopPath + "/pdf-renderer-cfg.xml");       
             
              //Build the configuration
              cfgBuilder = new DefaultConfigurationBuilder();       
              try {
                  cfg = cfgBuilder.buildFromFile(userConfigFile);
              } catch (ConfigurationException e) {
                  // TODO Auto-generated catch block
                  e.printStackTrace();
              } catch (SAXException e) {
                  // TODO Auto-generated catch block
                  e.printStackTrace();
              } catch (IOException e) {
                  // TODO Auto-generated catch block
                  e.printStackTrace();
              }
             
              //Get the PDF Transcoder object
              pdfTranscoder = new PDFTranscoder();
             
              //Configure the transcoder
              try {
                  pdfTranscoder.configure(cfg);
              } catch (ConfigurationException e) {
                  // TODO Auto-generated catch block
                  e.printStackTrace();
              }
             
              // Now, get the transcoder to use for the operation       
              Transcoder transcoder = (Transcoder) pdfTranscoder;
              if(transcoder == null) {
                  throw new SVGConverterException(ERROR_CANNOT_ACCESS_TRANSCODER,
                                                   new Object[]{destinationType.toString()},
                                                   true /* fatal error */);
              }
      
              // Now, compute the set of transcoding hints to use
              Map hints = computeTranscodingHints();
              transcoder.setTranscodingHints(hints);
      
              // Notify listener that task has been computed
              if(!controller.proceedWithComputedTask(transcoder,
                                                     hints,
                                                     sources,
                                                     dstFiles)){
                  return;
              }
      
              // Convert files one by one
              for(int i = 0 ; i < sources.size() ; i++) {
                  // Get the file from the vector.
                  SVGConverterSource currentFile
                      = (SVGConverterSource)sources.elementAt(i);
                  File outputFile  = (File)dstFiles.elementAt(i);
      
                  createOutputDir(outputFile);
                  transcode(currentFile, outputFile, transcoder);
              }
          }
         
      }
      

      and the content of the svg file is :

      <svg width="432" height="288" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink">
      <!-- Created with SVG-edit - http://svg-edit.googlecode.com/ -->
      <g>

      <image transform="rotate(14.4551, 388.899, 199.566)" xlink:href="http://localhost:8080/app/control/app/flex/svgdol/1321955504845/20111123141633795.jpg" id="svg_2" height="362.33104" width="308.62977" y="18.40178" x="234.58535"/>

      </g>
      </svg>

      but even after this the PDFTransocder 's output , i.e. the PDF doesn't contain the text in proper font, I tried to install the font on my O.S. as well,

      but that too didn't work.

      I'm using batik-all-1.6.jar ,Java version is 1.6 and O.S. is Linux(Ubuntu).

      Any guidance /pointers will of extreme help as I've been debugging the library at runtime since last couple of days and haven't been able to find the cause.

      Regards
      Prince
