Problem - Cannot render - external-graphic src attribute

 

Using Fop 0.20.5 - Standalone Swing application

 

** Application is a standalone Java Swing application.  Cannot seem to get a
jpg to render in my pdf unless I hardcode the complete path to the image in
the external-graphic src attribute. The data in the pdf renders fine, just
no image.  The image file is located in the same directory as the xsl file.

 

I have seen others post similar questions on various mailing lists, most
with no real solution.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks

 

I have tried the following: (none of these render the image)

If I use the complete path to the image all of these work

 

<fo:block>

            <fo:external-graphic src='url("com\some\image\path\image.jpg")'>

            </fo:external-graphic>

</fo:block>

[ERROR] Error while creating area : Error with image URL:
com\some\image\path\image.jpg (The system cannot find the path specified)
and no base URL is specified

 

also tried these src values, and some others that did not work. (The error
received follows each)

 

            <fo:external-graphic
src='url("file:com\some\image\path\image.jpg")'>

            [ERROR] Error while creating area : Error with image URL:
com\some\image\path\image.jpg (The system cannot find the path specified)
and no      base URL is specified

            

            <fo:external-graphic
src='url("file:///com\some\image\path\image.jpg")'>

            [ERROR] Error while creating area : Error with image URL:
\com\some\image\path\image.jpg (The system cannot find the path specified)
and no     base URL is specified

 

            <fo:external-graphic
src="file:///com\some\image\path\image.jpg">

            [ERROR] Error while creating area : Error with image URL:

            <fo:external-graphic src="file://image.jpg">
