Subject [Xmlgraphics Wiki] Trivial Update of "XmlGraphicsCommonComponents" by WilliamK31
Date Fri, 09 Mar 2012 09:52:58 GMT
Dear Wiki user,

You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "Xmlgraphics Wiki" for change notification.

The "XmlGraphicsCommonComponents" page has been changed by WilliamK31:
http://wiki.apache.org/xmlgraphics/XmlGraphicsCommonComponents?action=diff&rev1=28&rev2=29

  The FOP codebase contains two Batik transcoders for PDF and PostScript which can be used
independently of FOP and are distributed with Batik. The Batik team should be empowered to
help maintain these transcoders, for example, after changes in Batik itself. Since Batik and
FOP are both implementing an XML standard that creates graphical output there is some overlap
between the two efforts. Last but not least, a Batik release didn't involve a FOP release
until now which is something that must change.
  
  == The idea ==
- The idea now is to create a common area where the parts of common interest between the two
subprojects are jointly developed and maintained. XML Graphics Commons will deliver a set
of well-defined libraries of which some might provide some supporting tools (such as the TTFReader
and the PFMReader, but which will eventually vanish when they are not needed anymore). Other
potentially reusable software like utilities for build support, ant tasks, plugins for IDEs,
test frameworks and data files might also qualify for finding a home in XML Graphics Commons.
