Subject [jira] Created: (DOXIA-53) Pdf and Rtf support with the iText framework
Date Sat, 25 Feb 2006 00:33:36 GMT
Pdf and Rtf support with the iText framework
--------------------------------------------

         Key: DOXIA-53
         URL: http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/DOXIA-53
     Project: doxia
        Type: New Feature

    Reporter: Vincent Siveton
 Attachments: doxia_itext.zip, generated-doc.zip, itext_plugin.zip

Propose a Pdf/Rtf support with the iText framework for Doxia. 
Here is the architecture: 
- added an itext module in doxia-modules
- created a doxia-doc-renderer (similar to doxia-site-renderer)
- created an iText plugin for maven

The iText module generates iText XML files. So, documents should be generated in Pdf or Rtf
format (supported by iText).

You could see the howto in the plugin for more information or try the project tests.

According MPIR-17, we could be more generic by defining a new generated XML Doxia (I mean
another DoxiaSink) and apply XSLT  to generate other formats (like javahelp)

Known limitations:
- known limitations from the iText framework like roman list
- i18n for the "table of contents" title
- reports are not supported
- Renderer for Fml and Xdoc format should be improved. Parsers suppose that the renderer is
HTML. 

Attachments are:
- doxia zip with diff (containing doxia-doc-renderer and doxia-module-itext) and resources
- itext plugin zip with diff and resources
- a zip containing generated documents for the site project (real examples)
