I will do that, Francesco!
However, this patch alters the constructor. This could cause other updates.
Better override "setup"?
I think that every pipeline's component setup method is called. I will try that and log it in the ticket.

Good: looking forward for this.

Dear cocooners,

We use FOP to generate a PDF publication of a thesaurus. Needing cyrillic & greek we have to setup
a user configuration. This is not yet foreseen in the current FOPSerializer.
Yesterday Robby and Ivan were so kind to send me a working Cocoon 2.2 configuration.
This morning, there was room to adapt it to C3.

I suggest that we extend FOPSerializer.java a bit, to include an internal configuration file & resources.:

 public FlopSerializer(String outputFormat, String userConfigurationPath) {
       if (outputFormat == null) {
           throw new IllegalArgumentException("The parameter 'outputFormat' mustn't be null.");

       URL configurationURL = this.getClass().getResource("/COB-INF/" + userConfigurationPath);

       try {
           DefaultConfigurationBuilder cfgBuilder = new DefaultConfigurationBuilder();
           Configuration cfg = cfgBuilder.build(configurationURL.openStream());

       this.outputFormat = outputFormat;

This way, we can package our custom configuration and the font in the block jar.

Hi Jos,
this looks very nice: could you open an issue on JIRA and provide a proper patch for this? I would be glad to take it, then. Thanks!
