Mike CarrollSubject: Document Path reference after new install
Author: Mike Carroll
Date: 02 Sep 2009 01:05 AM
I have just moved to version 10 of SS Pro after using 8 for a couple of years. My primary need is to load an xml file and xsl style sheet and create a pdf document from them using a custom fop (set in the scenario).

Now this has been working for over 18 months.

However when I load my style sheet and try and run it to create the document, it comes up with a severe error;

"SEVERE: Exception
java.io.FileNotFoundException: Error: xsl file C:\Program Files\Stylus Studio 2009 Release 2 XML Professional Suite\bin\file:\c:\Strategis\Printing\Lubricants%20Installation\Templates\lub_invoice.xsl not found
at org.apache.fop.cli.CommandLineOptions.checkSettings(CommandLineOptions.java:733)
at org.apache.fop.cli.CommandLineOptions.parse(CommandLineOptions.java:145)
at org.apache.fop.cli.Main.startFOP(Main.java:154)
at org.apache.fop.cli.Main.main(Main.java:197)
...done"


Now it has obviously got confused with the path to the document, even though the document is already loaded and on screen. I have checked and unchecked the "store paths relative to the xslt path" in the scenario, but that doesn't help.

How do I get this thing to use the correct path?

Hi Mike,
Stylus Studio invokes the FOP processor on an XML file using the local path name (i.e. without the file:// prefix). How are you running the transformation? Are you by chance using a custom post processing step?

Yes, I am running post processing. Set up is as follows;

Source xml file file:///s:/Printing/Lubricants Installation/Templates/lub_invoice.xml

No other settings here.

Processor - Custom

"c:\Program Files\TIS Software Ltd\Document Formatter\FOP\fop.bat" -xml %1 -xsl %2 -foout %3

Post-Process

"c:\Program Files\TIS Software Ltd\Document Formatter\FOP\fop.bat" %1 %2
create file type .pdf

These settings are exactly the same as I had on SSL 2008 pro. Unfortunately the license stopped activating on this and I had bought the upgrade, so moved to version 10.

The fop path is correct and it operates correctly.

Any thoughts?

Hi Mike,
Stylus Studio always specifies the XSL parameter (indicated in the custom XSLT processor as the %2 macro) as a full URL, instead of using a local file name (as it does for the %1 macro argument). We will fix this mismatch in a future update of Stylus, but in the meanwhile you can workaround the problem by creating a new batch file containing

set ARG=%2
set LOCALPART=%ARG:~8%
set XSL=%LOCALPART:/=\%
call fop.bat -xml %1 -xsl "%XSL%" -foout %3

Note that this will not replace the %20 strings into spaces, so be sure to place the XSL being edited in a folder that doesn't contain spaces.

Hope this helps,
Alberto
