I am having a large web application which uses javaio for image manipulation: tomcat + java 1.4.2_08 on a debian machine, no X libraries what so ever. I tried to configure pja and yet nothing happens. Also created a simplet test program:

import javax.imageio.ImageIO;
import java.awt.image.BufferedImage;
import java.io.File;
import java.util.Properties;
import java.util.Enumeration;

public class TestJIO {
public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception{
File file = new File(args[0]);
BufferedImage img = null;
img = ImageIO.read(file);

and running everything with:

java -Xbootclasspath/a:/usr/local/pja/lib/pja.jar -Dawt.toolkit=com.eteks.awt.PJAToolkit -Djava.awt.graphicsenv=com.eteks.java2d.PJAGraphicsEnvironment -Djava.awt.fonts=$JAVA_HOME/jre/lib/fonts -cp . TestJIO pgeneral.gif

yet I get the following error:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: /usr/local/j2sdk1.4.2_08/jre/lib/i386/libawt.so: libXp.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

at javax.imageio.ImageTypeSpecifier$Packed.<init>(ImageTypeSpecifier.java:275)

What am I doing wrong?

Thank you,

As far as I know libawt.so relies on X11 libs in JDK 1.4 ; I think you should miserably add them on the server or use JDK 1.5. Please read http://www.eteks.com/pja/en/forum/viewSubject.jsp?subjectId=38 for more information.

We had similar error in our Weblogic application, trying to invoke JFreeChart service. Even when we'd loaded libXp.so.6 onto the server.

Weblogic expected to find the file in:

So we created a symbolic link there which points to
/usr/X11R6/lib/libXp.so.6, which itself is a symbolic link to

On a different server, the real libXp.so.6.2 file was loaded into /usr/X11R6/lib64/libXp.so.6 and we had a breakdown in the chain of symbolic links, which reports the same error, i.e.

javax.faces.FacesException: #{ViewGraphForPSS.cdlViewGraphForPSSAction}: javax.faces.el.EvaluationException: java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: /opt/weblogic/weblogic810sp6/jdk142_11/jre/lib/i386/libawt.so: libXp.so.6: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
