Subject PDFBOX-2896 - Problem in DublinCoreSchema title element occurs when deployed to Application Server, but is fine in Unit Tests
Date Fri, 05 Feb 2016 09:35:22 GMT

I'm trying to upgrade from pdfbox 1.8.10 to 2.0.0-RC3.
We try to create valid PDF/A documents with pdfbox.

I took the following example from trunk and recreated it in our application:

I created a unit test similar to CreatePDFA.java and pdfbox creates valid PDF/A document in
our unit tests.
But when I start to package the code into a WAR File and deploy it to a Wildfly 9.0.1-Final,
pdfbox starts to create slightly different XMP Metadata.
The XMP Metadata seems to be incorrect, just as described in https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PDFBOX-2896
<x:xmpmeta xmlns:x="adobe:ns:meta/">
  <rdf:RDF xmlns:rdf="http://www.w3.org/1999/02/22-rdf-syntax-ns#">
    <rdf:Description xmlns:dc="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/" rdf:about="">
          <rdf:li lang="x-default">PDF/A Rendition</rdf:li>
    <rdf:Description xmlns:pdfaid="http://www.aiim.org/pdfa/ns/id/" rdf:about="">

The list element for the Dublin Core title should have a xml:lang="" attribute instead of
The problem only occurs when the application is deployed to the application server.

If I manually adjust the Dublin Core title element, the resulting PDF is recognized as PDF/A
by the Adobe Reader.
What can cause the different results in the XMP Metadata between Unit Test and Application
Server Runtime?

With kind regards
