Bursting Barcodes

those of you pulling hair out over getting your barcodes into your bursting outputs under EBS - stop pulling, you're ot going crazy. You're going to have to go old school to get them showing up - the bursting engine will not check the Font Manager for fonts - its an bug or enhancement depending on how you look at it - we'll get it sorted either. In the mean time you can still get those barcodes or other fonts into hte output.


Two methods are available:


1. RTF Properties - I have covered these previously, you create a custom property in the RTF.

Name: xdo-font.<<font family name>>.normal.normal

Type: Text

Value: truetype.font <<directory+name>>

Its quick, the oly problem being the template might not be very portable unless the font directory is mounted across instances.


2. Config File - thats covered somewhere too. A file, xdo.cfg is put into the JRE_TOP/lib directory. Needs the following to map the font location to a name in the template. 

<config version="1.0.0"  xmlns="http://xmlns.oracle.com/oxp/config/">
   <!-- Font setting -->
    <fonts>
      <font family="3 of 9 Barcode" style="normal" weight="normal">
       <truetype path="C:\WINNT\fonts\3of9.ttf" />
      </font>
    </fonts>
</config>


Need to bounce those servers to take effect. Good Luck!

Comments:

I created a jdeveloper 11g jax ws barcode webservice. I could able to run it properly in jdeveloper 11g. But XSL is not generated properly (xsl:param and xsl:variables are not generated) when I deploy it to standalone weblogic server 10.3. I am getting the following error messages. [022309_111557708][][STATEMENT] WARNING: Found undetermined AttrKey: xdofo:w [022309_111557708][][STATEMENT] WARNING: Found undetermined AttrKey: xdofo:h [022309_111557708][][STATEMENT] WARNING: Found undetermined AttrKey: xdofo:in-table [022309_111557708][][STATEMENT] WARNING: Found undetermined AttrKey: xdofo:last-padding-bottom [022309_111558286][oracle.apps.xdo.common.xml.XSLTWrapper][EXCEPTION] XSL error: : XML-22031: (Error) Variable not defined: '_XDOXSLTCTX'. Am I missing any libraries?

Hi Tim, Thank you very much for the above. We are having the same issue ie custom Barcode font is mssing in the Bursting PDF files. We have tried one of the above suggested solutions ie Changing RTF Properties and it works, But we cannot implement this solution in our Oracle Apps 11.5.10 instance, since this could be a problem when we migrate to the next instance. We are thinking of implement the second solution ie Config File. It looks like we don't have xdo.cfg file in the Oracle Apps 11.5.10 environments. I don't find any relevant entry in the XML Publisher Administration to map the font location. Could you please advise how to config the font location in the Oracle Apps 11.5.10 environments. We have already applied the patch 7352374 on our apps instance, But no luck. I apprecicate your help. Thanks, Venkanna
