I have a standalone development box with CFMX 6 and the
latest version of iText installed. I have successfully been able to
merge multiple files of all shapes and sizes as well as add
watermarks. However, I have yet to try this on a server at the
worksite. After talking with an experienced developer who is
partially in charge of the company server, he informed that CFMX 7
has a version of iText installed and it should work fine with the
merging. I found out that I am scheduled to be migrated to CFMX 7
this month, so I went ahead and threw all the working code on the
new Windows 2003 - CFMX 7 development server and began testing.
I am now receiving an error: Object Instantiation Exception.
Object Instantiation Exception.
An exception occurred when instantiating a java object. The
cause of this exception was that: .
I have done lots of searching online and I've seen others
with this problem, but none of the solutions resolve my issue. I'm
pretty sure our server admins have not updated with the latest jar
for iText, so it should be the standard version for CFMX 7.0.2.
Here is my code (which worked on my development box for CFMX
I do work for a large company, which may have
enabled/disabled some functions/features. If no one sees any
problems with my code, then I'll investigate that route. Thanks
ahead for your assistance.

as i say in near the end of that thread, i found some PDF's
that code wouldn't
handle correctly using the version of iText that powers
cfdocument. since you
probably want cfdocument to still function, you should
consider using the latest
versions of iText along w/mark mandle's javaloader CFC.
