Apache™ FOP: PDF Images Plug-In

Overview

The fop-pdf-images plug-in extends FOP in order to add support for using PDF images in fo:external-graphic elements when generating PDF files. This means one can write something like:

<fo:external-graphic src="my-doc.pdf#page=1"/>

and

<fox:external-document src="my-doc.pdf"/>

Reduce file size

If you input many pdfs together the output pdf has duplicate fonts. Set this flag to merge fonts in fop.xconf:

<renderer mime="application/pdf">      
  <merge-fonts>true</merge-fonts>
</renderer>

Known issues with Postscript output

Binary Download

If using the binary package, the four jar files should be placed in the lib directory of your FOP installation.

Binary distributions include "-bin" in their names, and can be downloaded from a FOP-PDF-Images Distribution mirror.
