Subject [jira] [Created] (FOP-2266) Use ICU for line break determination.
Date Wed, 19 Jun 2013 10:04:20 GMT
Glenn Adams created FOP-2266:
--------------------------------

             Summary: Use ICU for line break determination.
                 Key: FOP-2266
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FOP-2266
             Project: Fop
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: page-master/layout
    Affects Versions: trunk
            Reporter: Glenn Adams
            Assignee: Glenn Adams


FOP uses a somewhat dated, internal implementation (org.apache.fop.text.linebreak) of UAX14
for determining line break opportunities. Now that FOP supports complex scripts like Thai,
etc., where more advanced line break support apply, such as dictionary driven tables, FOP
should transition to using a more standard, industry accepted library such as ICU, which is
already used by a number of Apache projects for other purposes, e.g., by PDFBox, Xerces, and
Xalan.
