Regardless, I'm curious to know if anyone else out there is
using an all Java setup?
I am using Java and XML.
Although I'm using Saxon, I've found it to be much faster then Xalan. Using
FOP for PDF output, but it's kind of "broken" in a few places (like tables.)
The only "real" problem I've had, is that when processing big documents
(>2mb) the Java tools consume HUGE amounts of memory. In fact I have to
increase the max heap allowed for the JVM to 512mb to do my PDFs.
My goal is to process our DocBook XML with an automatable Java tool.
Right now, I'm not using ANT, but just a series of Batch files to "automate"
the build process for a approx 1000 pages of content (DnD/d20 anyone?)
