Subject [jira] Created: (PDFBOX-361) NullPointerException in PDPageNode.getAllKids
Date Mon, 04 Aug 2008 18:26:44 GMT
NullPointerException in PDPageNode.getAllKids

                 Key: PDFBOX-361
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PDFBOX-361
             Project: PDFBox
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Parsing
            Reporter: Jukka Zitting

[Issue from SourceForge]

The parser cannot seem to find the Pages object in files created with
Acrobat Pro 9. A sample file is attached.

public static void main(String[] argv) throws Exception {
String name = "./test.pdf";
PDDocument doc = PDDocument.load(name);
PDPageNode root = doc.getDocumentCatalog().getPages();
ArrayList<PDPage> pages = new ArrayList<PDPage>();
System.out.println("pages.size() == "+pages.size());

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.NullPointerException

This happens with the latest code from CVS and also in older versions.

We are experiencing the same problem.  Offending pdf available if any of
you need it (jwilson@nmcourt.fed.us).  Looks like pdfbox does not support
some new feature introduced in Acrobat 9.

In Acrobat 8, the default was to generate PDFs following version 1.4 of
the PDF specification.  In Acrobat 9, the default is to to generate PDFs
following version 1.5 of the PDF specification.  PDF1.5 has objects known
as cross-reference streams and it turns out that PDFBox does not parse them
