Last updated on NOVEMBER 05, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Reports Developer - Version 11.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Running a PDF report that includes a GIF image file in the Layout Model and using the Oracle Reports parameter "outputimageformat=gif" is causing the report engine to crash (REP-56048) or to display REP-536874228 error message:

Example:
http://<hostname>:<port>/reports/rwservlet?server=<reports_server_name>&paramform=no&report=<report_name>.rdf&destype=cache&desformat=pdf&outputimageformat=gif&userid=<userid>/<password>@<tns_alias>
REP-56048: Engine rwEng-0 crashed., job Id

or


REP-536874228 : Internal error writing the image BandCombine: a row of the matrix does not have the correct number of entries, should be OpImage.getExpandedNumBands(source0.getSampleModel(), source0.getColorModel()) + 1.

Supplemental Detail REP-50125: An internal exception occurred: java.lang.NullPointerException.
REP-0002: Unable to retrieve a string from the Report Builder message file.
