OIT Web View Conversions On German Or French Windows Fail To Display If They Generate SVG (Doc ID 2473395.1)

Last updated on JULY 06, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Outside In Technology - Version 8.5.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On : Outside In Web View Export 8.5.3

SYMPTOM DETAILS
-----------------------
Any conversion that generates HTML with SVG fails to display in the browser if the conversion takes place on a server from a locale that uses a comma as a decimal separator.

This is confirmed on IE and Chrome, and is due to the values in tags formatted with commas for decimal separators.

WHAT IS WORKING
-----------------------
Conversion with US settings.

STEPS
-----------------------
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Open command prompt and start sample application C:\852\wv\sdk\samplecode\demoserver_nodejs>node demoserver.js
2. Point browser to http://localhost:8888/filebrowse.html.
3. Enter the directory containing the input files and click "Go".
4. Select the input file autodesk-autocad.dxf and view in the browser.

Next change the settings in the Windows Control Panel for Region and Language to:
Format: German (Germany)
Current Location: Germany

Repeat the steps above. Noting the image of the cup is not displayed like it was with US settings. Also note the differences in file autodesk-autocad.dxf.p1.html.
