Error description

  • When a user tries to look at the HTML report from the Rhapsody
    HTML Exporter, the browser pane will not open. This has been
    traced to the recent installation of Java 7 Update 25. It was
    tested with Java 7 Update 21 and it works with no issues. This
    has been tried with Rhapsody 8.0.1, 8.0.2 and 8.0.3 with the
    same results.

Problem conclusion

  • Fixed - by signing the applet used to view reports
    Work around:
    1. Goto the Java library and:
     - edit a file named java.policy. (e.g - on my
    machine it was in  c:\Program Files
    (x86)\Java\jre7\lib\security)
      Inside the grant {  add:
      permission java.io.FilePermission "??ALL
    FILES??", "read";
     - run javacpl.exe (in folder bin) and reduce the
    security level to Medium.
    
    2. Goto the folder of the report, and edit a file named
    ($ModelName)_cnt.htm (e.g. dishwasher_cnt.htm)
     Delete the line
        document.writeln("?PARAM NAME=ICONZIPFILE
    VALUE='pixs/icons.zip'?");
    
    We are working with Java to try and have them certificate
    R+'s reports - PRM 20260,001,866
    
    
    Note: to restore old behavior (in case custoemr is using old
    version of Java) you can add:
    [ReporterPLUS]
    UseJavaPre7=TRUE
    
    to Rhapsody.ini file
