Subject: RE: [docbook-apps] InputHandler error - generating PDF


The problem is with the source file, although it is valid. It seems that 

causes FOP to fail with the error stated despite being valid. Putting the
indexterm inside <para> tags stops FOP failing. 

I found the following thread on the fop-dev site
This indicates that FOP has had the ClassCastException fixed. However, I am
not sure 
- if there were modifications required in Docbook and if they have been
- what PDF destination means
- what fop1.extensions are used for and how this relates to this issue.

Here are a few suggestions:

* Make sure that the input document is valid.
* Create output both with and without your customization layer (if you have
one) to see if there is any difference.
* Narrow down the problem by making the troublesome source file as small as
* Google for "org.apache.fop.cli.InputHandler error" (and other relevant
messages). That might give you some clues.
* Try another FO processor, for example XEP.

If this gets you nowhere, post a small sample source file to the list for
others to try. If you do that, please also specify the version of the
stylesheets and the version of FOP that you use.
