Subject [jira] Commented: (FOR-635) images not reproduced in PDFs, if sources are in xdocs/images directory
Date Wed, 17 Aug 2005 06:23:55 GMT
    [ ] 

David Crossley commented on FOR-635:

Maybe i wasn't being clear. When forrest sees a URI that begins with "images/*.*" then it
uses main/webapp/resources.xmap to look first in xdocs/images/ directory (for backwards compatibility)
then in resources/images directory and elsewhere. That works fine for the html output, but
not for PDFs. Sure, behind the scenes maybe Forrest maps those to absolute for FOP. However,

I wonder if we should mark this issue as "Won't fix" and instead change our documentation
and the example "seed sites" to encourage the use of the project resources directory instead
instead of xdocs/images/ directory.

> We used to enable images to be placed in the xdocs/images directory. However, now they
are intended to go in the resources/images directory instead. Both methods will work for html
pages, but  only the latter method for the PDF pages.
