As I mentioned earlier, my sample servlet with RenderX API does not good
with OC4J app server (with J2SE1.4 and Servlet spec2.3).

However, it works good with apache-tomcat-5.5.27 (with J2SE1.4 and Servlet

Is RenderX support OC4J? Is there any specific Servlet specification we
nee to have for RenderX to run?

What I do in my code is the following:

 FOTransformer fot = null;
        formatter = new FormatterImpl(new
        target = new com.renderx.xep.FOTarget(result, "PDF");
        fot = new FOTransformer(transformer, formatter);
        fot.transform(inputDoc, target);

And I have xep.xml located in WEB-INF/classes/xep inside WAR. In this
directory inside WAR I have also other configuration files like
license.xml, hyphnenation patterns and fonts, all are relatively
referenced from withing xep.xml. This way XEP is completely
self-contained inside WAR and you don't have to separately install XEP
into application server. You just deploy WAR file and that is.
