Hello,

I'm using Apache FOP to convert page into pdf but i'm unable to add images from DAM into the pdf.

I'm using this tag in the fop xslt

<fo:external-graphic src="sling://content/dam/myproject/img/image.jpeg"/>

and have included the following namespaces into the xslt:

  xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"

  xmlns:fo="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format"

  xmlns:jcr="http://www.jcp.org/jcr/1.0"

  xmlns:sling="http://sling.apache.org/jcr/sling/1.0"

  xmlns:dam="http://www.day.com/dam/1.0"

But the image just isn't rendered. What am I doing wrong here?

Any help much appreciated. Thanks.

Actually, I should have mentioned it before - I'm using the FOP API directly to generate the pdf and not the ootb solution AEM comes with.

The ootb solution seems to have a few customizations to the API especially with regards to setting a custom URIResolver.

Similarly, in my case, I had to write a custom URIResolver which would search for the image paths within the repo and not on the file system and configure the API to use this resolver. That has fixed the problem.
