Error description

  • Error Message: When width of font is calculated for custom true
    type font, the value is returned as zero instead of proper font
    width.
    .
    Stack Trace: N/A
    .
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • Eventhough disabling the bitmap creation when requesting
    metrics, the hinting code creates a bitmap anyway. At extreme
    sizes this causes extreme memory allocations and results in
    incorrect font width value.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This defect will be fixed in:
    1.4.2 SR13 FP12
    .
    JVM is updated with Oracle bug fix 7124621 which avoid hinting
    when it is not required
    

Temporary fix
