A

"fop" command is the command line tool that allows you to run FOP 1.1 as a standalone application. It reads a XSL-FO file and generates a PDF file by default.

"fop" command requires that the environment variable JAVA_HOME be set to a path pointing to the appropriate Java installation on your system. See the session below on how to use the "fop" command:

\fyicenter>cd \local\fop-1.1

\local\fop-1.1>echo %java_home%
   \Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_45\

\local\fop-1.1>fop
