Subject [jira] Commented: (GERONIMO-2552) Remove SVG usage from Admin Console
Date Fri, 14 Sep 2007 13:11:32 GMT

Uncle Johns Band commented on GERONIMO-2552:
--------------------------------------------

I don't see any recent activity on this item.  I tried accessing the Chart demo and am presented
with the Message in IE (seems to work fine in FireFox) that the component is unable to load
the Adobe SVGN plug-in.  You are provided the link to the plug-in to download.

When you get to the Adobe site it is apparent that they will no longer be supporting this
as of 1/1/2008.

We need to remove the requirement for the SVG plug-in when using components such as the Chart
component so that there is cross-browser support without the need of a 3rd party plug-in.

1/1/2008 will be here very quickly and this issue only has a low priority.  I would think
that this issue should be elevated to be addressed and corrected sooner rather than later.
 

No one wants to use components that require a non-supported 3rd party plug-in to work.
