Yes sorin's already told me that - unfortunately I have already wasted my time working out what was wrong with my huge XSL-FO document as this option is disabled by default and I wasn't aware it was available! Either it should be enabled by default, or you should at least alert the user to its prese...

:shock:

If I'd have known that I would have saved myself hours of messing about... oh well

Perhaps if a FOP transformation fails, oXygen should offer to display the FOP output for the user, rather than hiding the option away in preferences.

I've managed to identify the cause through trial and error...

It was caused by an empty <fo:table-cell> that did not contain an <fo:block>

Clearly the FOP in 8.2 is stricter than previous versions, but it also leaves a lot to be desired with the quality of its error messages.

Hi I have restored the default transformation scenarios as you suggest but I am getting the same error. If it helps, I managed to get a very basic example working on oXygen 8.2 but my (more complicated) transformation still does not work. I guess there is a problem with the FO but it is definitely o...

FOP error in oXygen 8.2

Since upgrading to oXygen 8.2 I get an error when trying to transform an XML/XSL-FO combo to PDF using the built-in FOP transformation. I have tested the same transformation on another machine still running 8.1 and it executes with no problems at all. The error I am getting is as follows: The proces...

Thanks sorin. That sounds reasonable.

Just as a sidenote - the eXist Java client overwrites files without any warning at all!

Ability to overwrite files in an eXist database

Hello, I have noticed that when I try to overwrite a resource with a copy on my local machine, I just receive an error message and no option to overwrite the old file. I then have to find and delete the old file first before I can upload the new version, resulting in a short period of downtime. This...

Locking of eXist resources

Hello I have noticed another bug whilst using an eXist data source from within oXygen. If you open a file from the database, the file is (correctly) locked and any other users that try to open the file are notified of this. However, if you then save the file to your local machine (save as) and conti...

Thanks Sorin - I've tried it and it works perfectly now.

I'll look forward to the alphabetical sorting fix, as this will save me an awful lot of time.

Thanks again

Thanks for your reply stefan.

Just to clarify - will the fix also allow me to sort resources alphabetically then, or is it just attending to the 2nd problem?

I take it these are known issues then?

Just to clarify with the 2nd problem - I can edit and save existing .xql files in the database no problem at all. It's just when I try to add one as a new resource.

Issues using Database Explorer with eXist

Hi I've recently started using oXygen 8 with eXist 1.0 and have encountered a couple of issues using the database explorer: 1) Resources within collections are not displayed alphabetically by filename in the tree. For instance, I have a (very) large collection of .xql files in one collection and the...
