>                 Key: FOP-2495
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FOP-2495
>             Project: FOP
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: documentation
>    Affects Versions: 2.0
>         Environment: WIndows, Java 8, FOP 1.0

> Because of bug FOP-2177 we couldn't upgrade form FOP 1.0 to FOP 1.1. FOP 2.0 has solved
this bug (tested with standalone FOP scripts).
> Now we would like to upgrade our Java code from FOP 1.0 to FOP 2.0. The Upgrading page
(https://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/2.0/upgrading.html) says "You should encounter very few
issues in upgrading from FOP 1.0, except as noted in the following: ...". The truth is completely
different: starting by replacing fop.jar, our code gets dozens of compiler errors! Many methods
are simply gone:
> FopFactory.newInstance()
> FoUserAgent.setBaseURL(String);
> FopFactory.getFontManager().setFontBaseURL(String)
> FopFactory.setURIResolver(URIResolver);
> etc.
> The javadocs from 1.1 to 2.0 simple changed - no deprecated methods, no hints how to
replace old methods.
> The FOP 2.0 embedding page (https://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/2.0/embedding.html) just
shows simple examples to start from the ground. I can't find any migration help how to replace
old code. 
> E.g. how can I set the font base? FopFactory.getFontManager().setFontBaseURL(String)
is gone and I can't find any equivalent code for FOP 2.0!
> This is a major bug in FOP 2.0 as API changes are not documented to upgrade from FOP
1.x Java API to FOP 2.0!
> Now I just can search and try and experiment if I get our old code somehow running with
all those undocumented API changes. Can you please state a migration documentation for all
methods (method signatures) that don't exist anymore? We can't start coding all over again
from scratch. Thank you very much!
