hi renderx,


I'm contracting for a company that was expecting to use apache fop to
render their fo files into pdf. However, after looking at the fop output
I'm inclined to persuade them to try XEP which appears to produce nice
documents in the examples I've seen. Unfortunately I cannot get it
running. No one here, including myself, knows much java (we're perl
based). So here's where I'm at. The content of my xep file:




# XEP command-line












#"$JAVA_HOME/bin/java" \


"gij" \

        -classpath "$CP" \

        "-Dcom.renderx.xep.CONFIG=$XEP_HOME/xep.xml" \

        com.renderx.xep.XSLDriver "$@"


You'll notice that I removed the reference to java/lib/tools.jar which
we don't have installed here at present (let me know if this is an
absolutely required library).


The error I get when I type in the following command (presumably the
correct one to transform a test fo file into pdf)


./xep -fo /home/stephen/XEP/output/tiny.fo -pdf


Is this one:


Formatter initialization failed: java.lang.RuntimeException: error
initializing ImageFactory:java.io.IOException


To rule out the possibility of this having anything to do with image
references in the file I created a cut down version of the hammer.fo
(successfully produced with saxon.jar) file and called it tiny.fo-it's
simple text without any images.


Anything obvious spring to mind here regarding that error message?
