Hi, I'm running cocoon 2.1dev under tomcat 4.04b2 with JDK 1.3 and FOP 0.20.3. My cocoon app is generating a PDF using FOP. I use and embed a font in my generated PDF file with the following in my userconfig file:
<font metrics-file="d:/fonts/font_dynamo.xml" kerning="yes" embed-file="d:/fonts/dynamo.pfb"> <font-triplet name="dynamo" style="normal" weight="normal"/> <font-triplet name="dynamo" style="normal" weight="bold"/> </font> This all works fine and dandy under normal usage, I get the dynamo font embedded in my PDF and all is well. However if I run a load test (20 concurrent processes) on the same app. I get the following error appear in my tomcat log files: 2002-04-26 15:25:20 ERROR (2002-04-26) 15:25.20:375 [fop ] (/cocoon/invoice.pdf) HttpProcessor/MessageHandler: unknown font dynamo,normal,normal so defaulted font to any Not for every hit, but for some. So I'm guessing that there is some sort of problem with resource sharing. That is, could FOP not be thread safe as far as accessing this file? Or if the file is loaded into memory once, could there be multi-threading issues with reading from wherever it is stored in memory? Anyone got any ideas? Chris.
