Generate font metrics file

Generate font metrics file

Generate font metrics file

I use fop 1.0 and i want to generate a font-metrics file for the ttf 3of9 barcode:
java -cp build\fop.jar;lib\avalon-framework-4.2.0.jar;lib\commons-logging-1.0.4.jar;lib\commons-io-1.3.1.jar org.apache.fop.fonts.apps.TTFReader 3of9.ttf 3of9.xml >fontmetricslog.txt

The message I get in my log file is:
TTF Reader for Apache FOP 1.0

Parsing font...
Reading 3of9.ttf...

I don´t get any 3of9.xml file!!!

When I try to generate the font metrics file in Fop v 0.95 I get this message:
TTF Reader for Apache FOP 0.95

Parsing font...
Reading 3of9.ttf...

When I try to generate the font metrics file in Fop v 0.20
I get the following message:
TTF Reader v1.1.1

Reading 3of9.ttf...

Number of glyphs in font: 218
Unicode cmap table not present

What´s wrong??

RE: Generate font metrics file

[1] You have to add also serializer-2.7.0.jar and xml-apis-ext-1.3.04.jar to the classpath.
[2] If you want to read the error, you should do the re-direction as well.
