FOP : Java Glossary


FOP (Formatting Objects Processor) is an Apache open-source project. It is a print formatter driven by XSL (extensible Stylesheet Language) formatting objects and an output-independent formatter. It is a Java application that reads a formatting object tree and then renders the resulting pages to a specified output. Output formats currently supported are PDF (Portable Document Format), PCL (Printer Control Language), PS, SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics), XML (extensible Markup Language) (area tree representation), Print, AWT (Advanced Windowing Toolkit), MIF (Maker Interchange Format) and TXT. The primary output target is PDF.

It has classes for parsing Adobe Type 1 and TrueType (but not OpenType) font files to extract the meta-information.
