Gantt Viewer Does Not Start In Linux With OpenJDK Installed (Doc ID 1492617.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 20, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Agile Product Portfolio Management - Version and later
Generic Linux


On : version, Gantt Chart, Gantt does not start when launching from Linux

When trying to open the Gantt chart on a Linux system with FireFox browser download dialog opens for "AgileGantt.jnlp" opens, suggests to start the file with java webstart (that's still OK and worked for the configuration tool)

current behavior:
- Java Client does not open also

- When starting the Java webstart tool manually with the downloaded file:

/usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.6.0-openjdk/bin/javaws /tmp/AgileGantt-5.jnlp
netx: Unexpected net.sourceforge.jnlp.ParseException: Invalid XML document syntax. at net.sourceforge.jnlp.Parser.getRootNode(

- Verifying the jnlp file with xmllint:
xmllint /tmp/AgileGantt-5.jnlp
/tmp/AgileGantt-5.jnlp:11: parser error : XML declaration allowed only at the start of the document

/tmp/AgileGantt-5.jnlp:31: parser error : AttValue: " or ' expected
/tmp/AgileGantt-5.jnlp:31: parser error : attributes construct error
/tmp/AgileGantt-5.jnlp:31: parser error : Couldn't find end of Start Tag j2se line 31

That is a bug in PLM which produces broken XML files. In XML, the value of the attributes must always be in double-quotes.
If manually fix the issues by quoting the URLs within the XML file correctly, then the Gantt Chart opens.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. On Linux system, Firefox, OpenJDK installed
2. Navigate to a project in PLM agile
3. Press "gantt chart" button
4. Download dialog opens for "AgileGantt.jnlp" opens, suggests to start the file with Java Web Start (that's still OK and worked for the configuration tool)
