Subject [jira] [Commented] (PDFBOX-3024) Preflight validation call PDType0Font.clear at the wrong time
Date Tue, 01 Dec 2015 17:38:11 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PDFBOX-3024?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15034153#comment-15034153

John Hewson commented on PDFBOX-3024:

It's worth mentioning that CID 0 is the "missing CID", just like GID 0 is the missing glyph.

>             Project: PDFBox
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Preflight
>    Affects Versions: 1.8.10
>            Reporter: Guillaume Monteils
>         Attachments: 004973.pdf, PDF-Tools.png, PDFBox.png, eclipse-1.jpg, eclipse-2.jpg
> I used the algorythm here to test PDF / A compliance :
> https://pdfbox.apache.org/1.8/cookbook/pdfavalidation.html
> With one pdf document (which i cant give you due to confidentiality), an NullPointerException
occur here :
> {code}
> java.lang.NullPointerException
> 	at org.apache.pdfbox.pdmodel.font.PDType0Font.getFontWidth(PDType0Font.java:188)
> 	at org.apache.pdfbox.preflight.font.container.FontContainer.checkGlyphWith(FontContainer.java:114)
> 	at org.apache.pdfbox.preflight.content.ContentStreamWrapper.validText(ContentStreamWrapper.java:372)...
> {code}
> As i dug deeper, i found that preflight loads a font context where it puts all pdf fonts.
The PDType0Font is also created and put in this context.
> {code}
> (CSObject : COSDictionary{(COSName{BaseFont}:COSName{INWHIX+TimesNewRomanPSMT})     
 (COSName{DescendantFonts}:COSArray{[COSObject{349, 0}]}) (COSName{Encoding}:COSName{Identity-H})
      (COSName{Subtype}:COSName{Type0}) (COSName{ToUnicode}:COSDictionary{(COSName{Filter}:COSName{FlateDecode})
     (COSName{Length}:COSInt{260}) }) (COSName{Type}:COSName{Font}) })
> {code}
> The problem is that at the end of one step of the analysis, the clear method is called
on the PDType0Font (see eclipse-1.jpg), but the font is still present in the context. On a
second step, the same font is retrieved from the context, with no data in it, and the NullPointerException
occurs (see eclipse-2.jpg).
> I tried the validation after removing the clear method from PDType0Font and it works
just fine.
> I think the problem comes from this context, and a clear on a font should also trigger
a deletion in this map.
