The past two days I've been working on a small project which
required the generating of a PDF file with a barcode and some
other text data, and a watermark image. Today I decided to do a
clean install on Ubuntu 9.10 AMD64 running in VirtualBox of all
programs I use to convert an XML file, via an intermediate XML
file, to a PDF file, . And a good thing I did, since my customer
had trouble with making Apache FOP, one of the programs I use in
the project, work with the Barcode4J extension. The FOP shell
script, located in /usr/bin/, which launches the Java FOP
program is different in more recent versions of Ubuntu from the
script in Ubuntu 8.10, which I am (still) running. Instead of
CLASSPATH one now has to set
JAVA_CLASSPATH to the full path of a jar file to
make Apache FOP see the Barcode4J extension. This is explained
in more detail in the "Testing Barcode4J via Apache FOP" section
