Major problem- please help!

Hello,

We recently updated Aspose Slides for Java from version 14.9 to 15.6 because a important issue was solved in 15.6. But now we have a bigger problem, so we’re back to 14.9.

The problem is as follows: on serveral slides, version 15.6 “hangs”. We have tried 15.8 and this version crashes on these slides. We also tested everything with different JDK versions, the latest 1.7 and the latest 1.8 release. All have the same result. Version 14.9 works fine with these slides.

Here is a bit from the command line from testing with version 15.8:
/usr/bin/java -cp /home/httpd/javalibs/aspose.slides-15.8.0.jar:/home/httpd/javalibs/json-simple.jar:/home/httpd/javalibs/ MergePPTX result.pptx listfile

The firt argument, “result.pptx”, is the name of the resulting PPTX file, which should be created but is not because of the null pointer exception. The second argument, “listfile”, is a text file that contains a list of PPTX files that must be merged into one PPTX file. In this case, this file contains one line with the name of the original PPTX file “slide.pptx” (See attachment).

The code of MergePPTX.java is as follows:

Can you please help us?

Hi Michelle,


Thank you for your interest in Aspose.Slides.

I have observed your comments and worked with the code and presentation file shared by you but I am unable to reproduce the issue on my end. I have tested it in Windows 8.1, Aspose.Sides for Java 15.8.0 and JDK 1.8. Please share the environment details with us so that I may investigate it further to help you out.

Best Regards,

Hello,

Thank you for your response!

I’ve tested this on 3 linux systems:

  1. The production server, which is the most important
    CentOS release 6.7 (Final)
    java version "1.6.0_36"
    OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea6 1.13.8) (rhel-1.13.8.1.el6_7-x86_64)
    OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.25-b01, mixed mode)
    This is the JDK

  2. The test and release server
    CentOS release 6.7 (Final)
    java version "1.7.0_85"
    OpenJDK Runtime Environment (rhel-2.6.1.3.el6_7-x86_64 u85-b01)
    OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 24.85-b03, mixed mode)

  3. A development system
    Ubuntu 14.04.3 LTS
    java version "1.8.0_60"
    Java™ SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_60-b27)
    Java HotSpot™ 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.60-b23, mixed mode)
Kind regards,
