I'm trying to convert FO files to PDF using nfop.

This is the code I have already:

----------------------------------------
Dim objFODriver As New Driver

Dim strmFOutput As New java.io.FileOutputStream("c:\test.pdf")
objFODriver.setOutputStream(strmFOutput)

(2)Dim objXMLReader As org.xml.sax.XMLReader

Dim objInputSource As New org.xml.sax.InputSource

Dim objInput As java.io.InputStream

objInput = New java.io.FileInputStream("c:\test.fo")

objInputSource.setByteStream(objInput)

(1)objXMLReader.parse(objInputSource)

objFODriver.render(objXMLReader, objInputSource)
----------------------------------------

I'm getting a "object not instantiated" error on (1).  I don't know how to fix it really, since I can't use "New" on an interface (XMLReader) (2).

The text is in French, but the code is very legible although C#.

I read that, but its a bit more elaborate than I need.  This is the new code I've come up with.  Problem is, the PDF file is in use even when the sub ends.  When I close the program, it is then accessible.  Any ideas?

        Dim strmFOutput As New java.io.FileOutputStream("c:\test.pdf")

        Dim objInputSource As New org.xml.sax.InputSource

        Dim objInput As java.io.InputStream

        objInput = New java.io.FileInputStream("c:\test.fo")

        objInputSource.setByteStream(objInput)

        Dim objFODriver As New Driver(objInputSource, strmFOutput)

        objFODriver.run()

Been a long day looking at the code and I'm missing stupdi stuff now.  Thanks for all your help though!
