I understand what you are saying regarding the permissions but Squiggle for Batik 1.9 works perfectly on the exact same machine.


I’ve checked the file permissions in question and everything appears to be as expected.

I would say, you dont have permission to the file „init.svg“. Perhaps you run the application from a different user, as the user that created the file ?


Sorry I don’t know Squiggle and the other environment you’re a running batik on. But the exceptions itself says that the file can’t be read !

Betreff: AccessControlException when running Batik Squiggle 1.11


I am new to both Batik and this list so apologies if this question has been asked before.


I have tried to run Squiggle for Batik 1.11 both using the JARs and also via source but each time I get the attached exception.


It seems to stem from this exception: access denied ("" "setDefaultAuthenticator")

I am running Squiggle on Windows 10 x64 and have tried with both the latest versions of Java 8 and 12.  I note that this problem does not occur when I tried another version namely Batik 1.9.


Could someone please help me understand what the nature of this problem is?
