Subject Re: Batik 1.9 and Java 9
Date Wed, 11 Oct 2017 09:57:49 GMT
Further to this, I built batik-1.9 from source using JDK9 and got the same

Investigating, this is due to:
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: org/w3c/dom/Window

Class org.w3c.dom.Window is defined in batik-ext.jar. Other classes in the
org.w3c.dom package (e.g. Node) are provided by the runtime (running with
-verbose says it's from jrt:/java.xml) but Window isn't. My conjecture is
that this prevents the classloader from looking any further into jars
specified by the application, and maybe this has changed between JDK8 and 9.

I then renamed the package in the source for batik-ext.jar and fixed up all
the references in the rest of batik. Obviously this is only a hack. Then I
found that I could start squiggle and open an SVG file. I don't know if
this caused any other issues elsewhere.

Hope this helps,
