Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 45938] New: Better feedback needed for unknown image formats
Date Thu, 02 Oct 2008 16:05:33 GMT

           Summary: Better feedback needed for unknown image formats
           Product: Fop
           Version: 1.0dev
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: fop-dev@xmlgraphics.apache.org
        ReportedBy: vincent.hennebert@anyware-tech.com

If an image in an unknown format is specified as a background-image, FOP gives
a misleading error message:
  <fo:block background-image="unknown.xyz">Block</fo:block>

 org.apache.fop.fo.properties.CommonBorderPaddingBackground getInstance
SEVERE: Background image not available: unknown.xyz

When the same image is specified as an external-graphic, the error message is
hardly better:
  <fo:external-graphic src="unknown.xyz"/>

org.apache.fop.events.LoggingEventListener processEvent
SEVERE: Image not available. URI: unknown.xyz. Reason:
org.apache.xmlgraphics.image.loader.ImageException: No ImagePreloader found for

I discovered the issue by stumbling upon an svg file that didn't contain any
doctype declaration, hence not recognized as svg. Feedback should be improved
by clearly mentioning that the image is of an unrecognized format.
