Error on X need to restart web application

2003-08-29 05:45

Hello,

 

I wrote a servlet to display a PDF report to web users fetching data from a database.

The application works fine but there is a strange problem with X server.

If the first call of the servlet have a problem with X server (like forgot to launch the X server...), this cause an (obvious) exception like this:

 

[Exception stack trace]

java.lang.InternalError: Can't connect to X11 window server using ':1.0' as the value of the DISPLAY variable.

at miaapp.servlet.MIAServlet.doGet(MIAServlet.java:385)

 

But, now, if I start the X server the servlet still cannot create the report and throw this exception:

 

[Exception stack trace]

java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: dori/jasper/engine/fill/JRVerticalFiller

at dori.jasper.engine.fill.JRFiller.fillReport(JRFiller.java:150)

at miaapp.servlet.PrintReportServlet.doService(PrintReportServlet.java:144)

at miaapp.servlet.MIAServlet.doGet(MIAServlet.java:385)

 

The only way to resolve the problem is to restart the Web Application on Websphere (without restart X).

 

I have used JasperReports ver. 0.4.5 (I also tried with 0.5.0 without difference).

The application server is Websphere App Server rel 5.0.2, with JVM 1.3.1 (exactly "J2RE 1.3.1 IBM").

I tried with two X servers: Xvnc (on Linux) and Xvfb, the problem and the exception are the same.

Operating system is IBM AIX but I've tried on Linux (RedHat 7.3) whith the same result.

 

I don't know if this is a bug but appear that JasperReport "remember" the bad startup with X, are there any way to reset this "memory" ?

I need a way to avoid to restart the entire web application.

 

Thank you.

Hi

we have same problem with linux/tomcat,but it's not the poblem of jasper ,it's webserver who remember the bad things. I delete the work directory of the web server.

this may help for you.

Thank you for your suggestions but I don't understand why the problem is on the web server, I think the problem is on application server (Tomcat for you), the web server has only a cache (I don't think that web server has any kind of "logic").

But the major question is: what is the "work directory" ? The PDF is composed in memory, without any files (except for report template and eventually temporary files).

 

Thank you

your are right. not the websever but application server remember the bad thing.for tomcat ther is a directoty named work ,it's tomcat's work directory to record some inner runtime information .

in jasper source code ,i find error souce in jrbasefill.java

static

{

//FIXME use this in some kind of a isFontAvailable method

String envfonts[] = GraphicsEnvironment.getLocalGraphicsEnvironment().getAvailableFontFamilyNames();

}

 

so may when application sever encounter a java inner error ,record it and no longer load this class.

 

you also can try to update this file,add a try-catch.
