[JAVA2D] Discovering physical fonts

1 reply [Last post]
Anonymous

I'm looking at issues involved in embedding font files in PDF. Java2D
is doing an increasingly impressive job of providing font facilities,
most recently kerning and ligatures, to developers with a minimum of
fuss. However, in situations like font embedding, the developer needs
access to the physical font. Is it possible to discover the physical
file within J2D?

There is an RFE to address this.
4752644 : RFE: Getting a java.awt.Font's FilePath

you can look it up on bugs.sun.com and read the state
which can be summarised as TBD .. we do have some
concerns about noting the embedding flags of a font.
