XDO Bursting To File System Creates Only The First PDF File And Then Fails With java.io.FileNotFoundException: '/data//loonstrook///016775_HS__.pdf' (No such file or directory) (Doc ID 1942100.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 17, 2016

Applies to:

BI Publisher (formerly XML Publisher) - Version 11.5 to 12.2 [Release 11.5 to 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

 Some dynamic variables in the bursting control file not being filled with the values from the XML data source file and fail with the following error:

java.io.FileNotFoundException: /data/016443.pdf (No such file or directory)

This can be reproduced with the following steps:
1. Produce a couple of PDF files using XML Publisher and an RTF template.
2. Then split those files bursting to the filesystem in single PDF files, one per employee.
3. This PDF file is correctly formed and it contains the expected data. The problem is that after the first one, the bursting process goes in error as it attempts to create the file in a non existing path as follows:
'/data//loonstrook///016775_HS__.pdf' and errors.
