When I run the command:
fop -pdf resume.pdf -xsl /usr/share/xsl/resume/output/us-letter.xsl -xml resume.xml

I get the error:
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: org.apache.xmlgraphics.util.Service.providerNames(Ljava/lang/Class;)Ljava/util/Iterator;
at org.apache.fop.apps.FopFactory.<init>(
at org.apache.fop.apps.FopFactory.newInstance(
at org.apache.fop.cli.CommandLineOptions.<init>(
at org.apache.fop.cli.Main.startFOP(
at org.apache.fop.cli.Main.main(

That stylesheet is from the xmlresume package in AUR.

I just installed fop-1.1.-1, and it pulled down java-avalon-framework-4.2.0-5, java-batik-1.7-11, java-commons-io-1.4-5, and java-xmlgraphics-commons-1.4-2 as dependencies.

That error occurs when org.apache.fop calls org.apache.xmlgraphics - maybe a version mismatch with that java-xmlgraphics-commons dependency?
This task depends upon

I have the same issue. It works with xmlgraphics from AUR.

Looks like this has been fixed by upgrading java-xmlgraphics-commons to 1.5:

$ pacman -Q java-xmlgraphics-commons
java-xmlgraphics-commons 1.5-1
$ jar xf /usr/share/java/xmlgraphics-commons/xmlgraphics-commons.jar org/apache/xmlgraphics/util/Service.class
$ javap -p org.apache.xmlgraphics.util.Service | grep providerNames
public static synchronized java.util.Iterator<java.lang.String> providerNames(java.lang.Class<?>);

Can anybody confirm that this error no longer occurs?
