Subject JSPWiki: Problem with PDF plugin and images
Date Wed, 23 Jan 2008 14:58:04 GMT
Hi Pål!

I have solved my problem with images (special characters remain to be solved)...

We use here the NTLM authentication. In web.xml, the setting obliges every files to be accessed
by an authenticated user. The image retrieval within the PDF generation in the server cannot
be authenticated.

For now, I modified the web.xml to request authentication for .jsp and .pdf files only...

Have a nice day!

Though I do not currently use the plugin actively, I know of several
users that have the plugin up and running with images without

As for language support, you may want to make sure the font used for
PDF-generation has all the characters you are using as a first start.

I you wish to dig deeper in the source code, feel free to do so at

Also note that I'm not on the jspwiki-user list so if you want me to
see your replies, please CC me.
