java.lang.RuntimeException: Velocity could not be initialized!

I developed on my win machine, so I guess I ran in this error a bit too late smile

The test server is a linux machine now and I guess I have to specify where the log should exist?

Whole exception:


Thx in advance

Could you give a bit of background? What's your question?

This widget could not be displayed.

I created a new Velocity object:

VelocityEngine ve = new VelocityEngine()

I used it with a VelocityContext and everything worked fine on my Win machine. I guess there was no problem to create the velocity.log but now on linux on my test server it crashes.

After that I thought that pulling Velocity from the ComponentAccessor will be a better way and maybe there everything is configured. That last bit I´ll try tomorrow.

This widget could not be displayed.

Ok, I tried this way now:

VelocityManager velocityManager = ComponentAccessor.getVelocityManager()

Map<String, Object> context = new HashMap<String, Object>()

context.put("issueSummary", "summary")
context.put("issueKey", "SD-678")

Path path = Paths.get(this.class.getResource("view/email/subject.vm").toURI())

log.debug(velocityManager.getBody(path.parent.toString(), path.fileName.toString(), context))

But that will throw a much bigger exception:

Can someone point me the correct way to go here?

Why are you passing just the filename? Yours Paths stuff is wrong and not necessary.

This widget could not be displayed.

Because the method is:

public String getBody(String templateDirectory, String template, Map<String, Object> contextParameters) throws VelocityException

Do you have an working example?

You meant this, right? :o

velocityManager.getEncodedBodyForContent(this.class.getResource("view/email/subject.vm").getText("utf-8"), "", context)
This widget could not be displayed.

Oh right... sorry. I don't have any problem with this, so don't think I can help...

Does that last line right?

This widget could not be displayed.

The last one works fine!
