http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=36729 Summary: Font metrics-url and embed-url are aways absolute, fails without good error message Product: Fop Version: 1.0dev Platform: All OS/Version: All Status: NEW Severity: major Priority: P2 Component: pdf renderer AssignedTo: email@example.com ReportedBy: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Under 1.0 the metrics-url and embed-url attribites of the <font> element are not relative to the specified base directory. Therefore they are loading from the working directory of the process (which is usually c:\windows\system32 if your server is running as a windows service). Under 0.20 one was able to call: org.apache.fop.configuration.Configuration.put ("fontBaseDir","/absolute/path/to/metrics/directory"); or put this in your configuration file. Is is possible to add a way to specify a base directory for the font metric files, or make them relative to the configuration file itself. Otherwise one needs to encode system specific paths in the configuration file. Also, this fails silently at the moment, and later on throws a null pointer error. Logging of the failure to load a metric file is labelled as todo. Since this is going to be a common error, a meaningful message will save users hours of trying to figure out what is happening.... Attached is a patch file to log a meaningful error. Also I have moved the flag of successfull loading so that the flag is only set if they are really loaded. Should the exception propogate up rather than swallowing it? -- Configure bugmail: http://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/userprefs.cgi?tab=email ------- You are receiving this mail because: ------- You are the assignee for the bug, or are watching the assignee.
