I want to append two pdf outputs into a single pdf file. How do I do this using FOP ?
Well, this is waaaaay off topic here, but anyway: you can't do it this way. Approaches: - Somehow process your source XML files in a way which results in *one* FO, thereby getting the desired PDF directly. If you produce the FO with XSLT, check the document() function for pulling in source XML as well as xsl:include/xsl:import for merging the XSLT. - Use iText or another PDF tool for merging the PDF byte streams. Get some hints from examples from the FOP web site (start with the FAQ) or take a peek at the iText tutorial and sample programs.
