Re: should FOP require JDK1.2.x?
Thank you to everyone so far who has contributed suggestions both on the list and directly to me. I hope people don't mind this discussion being on the list. I figure it is of some relevance to a number of XML developers (where *it* is the whole question of 1.2 vs 1.1, *not* the specific question of what Fop should do :-) > We could make a more concrete determination if James outlined the features > he's looking to use in 1.2. None in particular. I have a couple of ideas though: 1. The collections framework. Although I could use that with 1.1 as a couple of people have pointed out. My only concerns with that are: (a) for convenience for those that don't already have collections with 1.1 it would be better for me to include it with Fop (b) I might not be allowed to include it with Fop (I haven't checked the licence) (c) if I do bundle it, I would have to include a distribution of Fop without it for those people that already have it 2. Other libraries that require 1.2. For example, some of the stuff that I'd like to do might be nice to try out with MDSAX2 but that requires 1.2 3. Java 2D / Printing. I'd like Fop to be able to print and display on screen directly without PDF as well as with and Java 2D / Printing would be the obvious way to do this. The modular nature of Fop would enable me to perhaps distribute a separate 1.2 application to do this and leave the core as 1.1 Incidently, from 0.10.0 I've been compiling with a 1.2.2 compiler but only using 1.1 libraries. Does anyone know if this will still cause problems for people using 1.1. (ie should I go back to using a 1.1 compiler).
