Subject [jira] [Commented] (ODFTOOLKIT-341) newImage() generates java.lang.NullPointerException when using an svg image
Date Tue, 30 Jul 2013 22:05:48 GMT


Anders Sjöström commented on ODFTOOLKIT-341:

SVG is great for many things. And now when both oOo and LibreOffice has great support for
SVG one would expect all ODF resources to at least not crash :)

I'm currently on holiday so I'm not much use - I can't help you reproduce the problem. I not
sure, but I guess that since this defect is closet that you should write a new one and state
that you have a similar problem. My personal guess is that there are several execution paths
in the code that can lead to crashes since the SVG support is so lacking...

>             Fix For: 0.6-incubating

> I'm trying to create an odt file, and insert text and svg images, with limited success.
> Inserting a png image is no problem, but when I change the line to insert an svg image
I get an exception.
> This is the minimum program to demonstrate my problem:
> import;

> public class odfgenerator {
> 	public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
> 		TextDocument outputOdt;
> 		outputOdt = TextDocument.newTextDocument();
> 		outputOdt.addParagraph("Hello World.");
> 		//URI uri = new URI("file:///C:/Users/myuser/Desktop/simple.png");
> 		URI uri = new URI("file:///C:/Users/myuser/Desktop/simple.svg");
> 		outputOdt.newImage(uri);
> 	}
> }
> If I run my program (in Eclipse) I get:

> SEVERE: null
> java.lang.NullPointerException

> I delete HelloWorld.odt before every run, just to make sure. The odd thing is that despite
the exception, HelloWorld.odt is still created, with the svg file inside the Pictures directory,
and the content.xml has an draw:image tag with xlink:href="Pictures/simple.svg". The odt file
can be opened with Apache Open Office without problem, and will display the picture.
> Changing the URI to point to an png file instead results in the program terminating normally
without any errors. The resulting file can also be opened with Apache Open Office without
> simple.svg is a very simple svg file created with Inkskape containing two boxes, and
saved as "plain svg".
> Am I doing anything wrong or is this a bug?
