Footer is not generating properly in PDF at Oracle Application Server


We are using the Java Apose pdf kit file (aspose-pdf-kit-3.6.0.jar) for adding the page numbers and footer. it's working fine at testing directly in Linux environment (Standalone application). it's not generating properly when deploy application into the oracle Application server.

tested file is attached.

Used the below mentioned code for adding the Footer and Page Numbers into the PDF file.

String inFile = "D:\\AGILE.pdf";
String FooterFile = "D:\\Footer_x2010_xlsx.pdf";
String outFile = "D:\\Page_x2010_xlsx.pdf";
String stampFile = "D:\\Stamped_x2010_xlsx.pdf";

String footerText = "001 A Admin 12/15/2010";
String footerNotes = "This is a sample file";

int footerAttrSize = 7;
int footerNotesSize = 6;
int pageNumberSize = 6;

com.aspose.pdf.kit.License license = new com.aspose.pdf.kit.License();
license.setLicense(new FileInputStream("d:\\Aspose.Total.Java.lic"));
PdfFileStamp fileStamp;

fileStamp = new PdfFileStamp(inFile, FooterFile);

FormattedText footerText_format = new FormattedText(footerText, new FontColor(250, 0, 0), FontStyle.Courier, EncodingType.Winansi, false, new Integer(footerAttrSize));
FormattedText footerText_notes = new FormattedText(footerNotes, new FontColor(250, 0, 0), FontStyle.Courier, EncodingType.Winansi, false, new Integer(footerNotesSize));
fileStamp.addFooter(footerText_format, 15);
fileStamp.addFooter(footerText_notes, 5);


PdfFileInfo fileInfo = new PdfFileInfo(FooterFile);
int totalPages = fileInfo.getNumberofPages();

PdfFileStamp fileStamp12 = new PdfFileStamp(FooterFile, outFile);
FormattedText ft = new FormattedText("Page # of " + totalPages, new FontColor(250, 0, 0), FontStyle.CourierBold, EncodingType.Winansi, false, new Integer(pageNumberSize));

fileStamp12.addPageNumber(ft, 1);

PdfFileStamp fileStamp1 = new PdfFileStamp(outFile, stampFile);
Stamp logoStamp = new Stamp();
logoStamp.bindLogo(new FormattedText("Preliminary", new FontColor(90, 90, 90), FontStyle.TimesRoman, EncodingType.Winansi, false, 50));
logoStamp.setOrigin(200, 300);

Hi Dale,

Could you please also share some details regarding the issues you’re facing while generating PDF file on Oracle server?

We’re sorry for the inconvenience.

Hi Shahzad,

In Oracle Application server, it is not throwing any error. first we are converting the xlsx to pdf file and then adding the footer details into it. It’s working fine when we convert the xls to pdf . if we convert the 2010 xlsx to pdf file, it’s not generating properly.

we have tested it directly in Linux server as a standalone application , it working file. if we deploy the same application into Oracle Application server, footer is not generating properly.

Please let me know,if you need any other details.

Hi Dale,

We have prepared a debug build for further analysis of this issue. Please download the build from this link. You need to set the path to the log file as shown below:

PdfFileStamp fileStamp = new PdfFileStamp(inFile, FooterFile);


Please note that the directory where this file will be stored must exist. The file will be created automatically. Please share the log file with us, so we could further investigate the issue at our end and guide you accordingly.
