    Coldfusion imagepaste,imageresize errors

    dha2 Level 1

      I have an application that uses cfimage to load an image which is then resized (using imageresize) and overlaid with a watermark (using imagepaste).   It had been running for some time on a UNIX platform and now fails.  The error message is "could not initialize class javax.media.jai.JAI. 

       

      The error occurred with imageresize(imagename,300,"",highestPerformance)  and I can get past that error by using imageresize(imagename,300,"",highPerformance).

       

      However the same error then occurs on Imagepaste(image1,image2,0,0) and I have found no way around that problem.

       

      One development platform is a Win10 CF version 2016,0,03,300466 with Java version 1.8.0_72  and no such errors occur on the test system.

      Another development platform is a Win10 CF version 2016,0,0,297996 with Java version 1.8.0_72 and no errors occur on that test system.

      The production systems is UNIX CF versionj 2016,0,03,30046 with Java version 1.8.0_72 and errors occur there so the application no longer runs.

       

      The production system is a hosted system that I cannot change or track what has changed but the hosts have not succeeded thus far in finding a fix to this problem.  Need to make some progress on this ASAP.

          Hi Dale,

           

          Looks like, the issue is specific to OS (Unix) or Apache. This might require some troubleshooting back and forth.

            The problem has gone away, with no known change to the host system software.  Earlier, it continued to fail after updates to Java and system reboots.   Then after several days passed, it started working again with both simple test pages and the production application.

             

            I am rewriting the application so that it functions without using imageresize and Imagepaste since if went away without a reason it may likely return and cause the application that had depended on cfimage to again stop functioning.   The application owner does not want to depend on a software feature that may or may not function with no apparent cause or no other dependable way to fix it.
