Subject RE: Performance: Caching Fonts, stylesheets

FOP is not using any stylesheet to render a pure XSL-FO document into PDF.
Do you create a temporary XSL-FO file with RTF2FO or are you sending
SAX-Events or a DOM to FOP? 
BTW, we are also distributing an RTF to XSL-FO processor, called JFO, that
already comes with integration for FOP and other renderers. We are sending
SAX-Events to FOP immediatelly after converting from RTF to XSL-FO. This
saves a lot of time, because no XML stream must be parsed. I would be happy
if you could download the latest build of JFO and make some tests. ;-)

Subject: Performance: Caching Fonts, stylesheets


currently I try to to increase the performance in my FO2PDF process. 
I have a complex 2 page rtf document, which is converted manually by RTF2FO.
The FO to PDF process takes about 4 secs. 
I am using already a driver pool. 

Removing the true type fonts in the config xml saves approximately 1 second.
Can these fonts be cached somewhow ? 
Is FOP using xslt to render the PDF ? Would a cashed stylesheet then be an
optimization ? 

Is there anything else I can do ? 

Thanx, Thomas
