  • BarCode PDF Fonts

    I create a report with barcode font but when generate a PDF not display the barcode.When generate a HTML display a barcode correct.

    Admin create a xdo.cfg file in the location /product/otm/jdk/jre/lib/ and specify in the file the location of font :

    <font family="C39HrP36DlTt" style="normal" weight="normal">
    <truetype path="/u01/app/otm/product/otm/jdk/jre/lib/fonts/c39hrp36dltt.ttf" />

    and chnage the property
    glog.bipreports.configFile.path with the location of xdo.cfg file.

    Any idea for this issue?

    Dear All,

    We are trying to print Barcode report we did the below

    1) Code 128 and Free 3 of 9 was placed in the application server Fonts Folder and given read/write/execute access

    2) Config File xdo.cfg was created and placed in the lib folder, with the path pointing to the new Fonts

    3) We gave the config file path in the Bireports properties.

    4) Restart the server.

    Our server does not have any patches. But when ever the XDO file is placed in the server even the public/existing PDF reports which was working earlier and does not have bar code are throwing Java null pointer exception. In this case any PDF report throwing this error.

    But if we remove the XDO file restart then the PDF reports are working fine, but in this case Barcode font does not take into effect.

    Report error log also does not show any information on the error, shows only the exception.

    kindly let us know if anything is missed here like any patch or any other setup to make this work
