The ApacheCon EU 2007 is coming up and the deadline for proposals ended last night. I’ve seen several ApacheCon proposals come by over the past weeks and was thinking together was Jasha that we had to do something ourselves this year. We’ve both worked on a lot of projects build with Apache Cocoon for a couple of years now and know most of the pains when starting with Cocoon, so we decided to submit a proposal ourselves: “Basic web application development with Apache Cocoon”.
First of all: HAPPY NEW YEAR!! As you might have noticed another year has past and 2007 is already here.Lots of great things happened last year and many more good things are planned for 2007.
I got tagged by Arje the other day, so here goes:
Yesterday I stumbled upon another hidden feature of Batik, when I noticed that the Visio diagrams didn’t show their arrowheads in the generated jpeg. It seems this is caused by an inappropriate markerWidth/Height and viewbox. According to the SVG specification you need to make sure the marker does not overflow it’s viewport.
Last week I was working on a project that translates svg to jpeg. Creating jpeg’s from svg is pretty easy with the Apache Batik SVG toolkit. But the customer needed to be able to link from the svg files to another location, so I had to create html imagemaps from the hyperlinks created from within the svg.
