CeWolf - SeriesPaintProcessor

Dear Experts,

I have just started using CeWolf-1.1.5 in a JSP application to display bar graphs. I was able to come up with a vertical bar graph (single category).
By default, it is Red in color. I tried using SeriesPaintProcessor to change the color of the bars. The J2ee engine is not able to parse the JSP and is giving the error:

The error is: com.sap.engine.services.servlets_jsp.lib.jspparser.exceptions.JspParseException: Cannot parse custom tag with short name [param].



Below is the relevant code that I am using:

<%@taglib uri='/WEB-INF/tld/cewolf.tld' prefix='cewolf' %>
<jsp:useBean id="seriesPaint" class="de.laures.cewolf.cpp.SeriesPaintProcessor" />
<html>
<body>

<jsp:useBean id="pageViews3" class="com.test.model.MyDataProducer"/>
<cewolf:chart
id="verticalbar"
title="Page View Statistics"
type="verticalbar"
xaxislabel="Page"
yaxislabel="Views">

<cewolf:data>
<cewolf:producer id="pageViews3"/>
</cewolf:data>
<cewolf:chartpostprocessor id="seriesPaint">
<cewolf:param name="0" value="#66bc29"/>
</cewolf:chartpostprocessor>
</cewolf:chart>


<cewolf:img chartid="verticalbar" renderer="cewolf" width="400" height="300">

</cewolf:img>


</body>
</html>

It works fine and displays the bar graph (in Red color) if I remove

<cewolf:chartpostprocessor id="seriesPaint">
<cewolf:param name="0" value="#66bc29"/>
</cewolf:chartpostprocessor>

Thanks for your help in advance.

Thanks,
aman

For starters, use this taglib definition:

<%@taglib uri="http://cewolf.sourceforge.net/taglib/cewolf.tld" prefix="cewolf" %>

Thanks for your response.
Anyone using SAP's WAS, make a note of this. This is a bug in SAP WAS .The version I am using is 7.0.
I am pretty sure that this bug exists in other versions as well. SAP engine doesn't seem to accept JSP custom tag param values when specified in ""(Double quotes).
It has to be declared as a Java expression as mentioned below.

<cewolf:chartpostprocessor id="seriesPaint">
<cewolf:param name="0" value='<%="#66bc29"%>'/>
</cewolf:chartpostprocessor>

By changing from value="#66bc29" to value='<%="#66bc29"%>', it worked.

Thanks & Regards,
Amandeep

Good to hear you got it resolved. Make sure to file a bug report with SAP. Maybe it's just the '#' character that's confusing it?

I don't think it is the "#" char that is confusing the SAP Java engine as I have seen the same problem with other non- color parameters.
It is the tag "param" as in

<cewolf:param name="outline" value='<%="true"%>'/>

is not getting parsed properly.

I will raise a defect to SAP for this

Thanks,
Amandeep
 
All that thinking. Doesn't it hurt? What do you think about this tiny ad?
