XEP users and developers:
I have been working with a copy of 2.78 for an
academic client. I am running RedHat 7.2 (2.4.3) on a
dual proc PII 800 MHz with 768 Megs of ECC RAM. The
Java(TM) 2 Runtime Environment, Standard Edition
Classic VM (build 1.3.0, J2RE 1.3.0 IBM build
cx130-20010626 (JIT enabled: jitc))
Note: I am not validating the XSL-FO. I find that
rendering is on the slow side. For example, I am
rendering a page that has nested tables (1 level deep)
and one graphic (seems to have little to no effect
when removed) which takes about 5 seconds to render.
If I take the nested table out, I get an increase of
almost 2 seconds. I know performance is a common
complaint with today's XSL-FO rendering engines. I am
willing to live with it to some degree, but crave a
bit more speed. I have searched and have been unable
to find any claims about the speed of versions 3 and
greater. Is it better? Will future versions address
speed? If so, how soon? Please point me to any
information on this matter. Also, I have read on your
support archive site about certain JVMs being faster
than others, but the respondants failed to say which
flavors. Which JVM performs the best?
I have a client with deep pockets who is considering
moving to XSL-FO with its next generation of ASP
solutions. I need to have meeting fodder on the topic
of performance. Deep pockets also means they may be
willing to spend a bit on better servers than my
academic client. So I may be able to muscle through
it for now. Also note, this client will be dealing
with larger, more complex documents.
Thank you for any thoughts on the matter.
P.S. Great product overall! I think XEP has made
XSL-FO viable in the present.
