Error invoking a custom component in a Process.


Former Community Member

I've build a custom component that uses Output ES services.

If i run it as a Java app all runs well, he generates the output pdf files and output report .xml file.

If i import it as a component into Livecycle ES and use it in a process i get the following error:

2008-05-20 11:35:52,390 INFO [STDOUT] com.adobe.livecycle.output.exception.OutputException: java.lang.ClassCastException: com.adobe.livecycle.output.client.OutputResult

2008-05-20 11:35:52,390 INFO [STDOUT] at com.adobe.livecycle.output.client.OutputClient.generatePDFOutput(OutputClient.java:122)

I deploy it with th adobe-output-client.jar in my component jar and the reference for it in the component.xml file (also in my component.jar).

How can i solve this problem? thanks

Hi Rui

Very difficult to know from your description.

It's a class-cast exception - try to find the line in your code that's doing the cast, and find out what the actual object is.

It could also be a jar versioning problem, or a class-loader problem.

Sorry, very difficult to help without doing some detailed debugging.
