Subject Re: representative example needed - success story

I suppose now is a good time to share my experience with FOP with the
rest of the mailing list, particularly the FOP developers.

I'm a software developer working for a company that does health care
administration services for many large US companies. Many of these
clients have former employees who enjoy COBRA benefits, others provide
subsidized benefits for their employees or retired former employees.
We've been using FOP for well over a year now, creating over 35000
invoices per month, most of which are available to our participants
online as a static document that they can view or download. We're also
beginning to use FOP to generate all of our client level reports,
although we have yet to undertake the task of converting the old C++
programs that currently generate the reports in HTML ;). If that's not
enough, we're just finishing up a system to generate all types of
different healthcare-related participant letters such as open enrollment
forms using FOP for rendering.

As for the future, I've just finished implementing an OCR scanline
(using an embedded OCR font) and POSTNET barcode (using the fabulous
barcode4j package at http://barcode4j.krysalis.org) on our individual
invoice stub to save money and time spent matching payments to

In other words, much thanks to all the FOP developers past, present, and
future, for putting so much time into this great product!

Thanks!  Success stories ([1] is my favorite)--as well
as failures (honesty of its limitations also being
helpful in increasing confidence in FOP)--are always
welcome on this list.
