RPGLE
A good friend of mine recently created a Java program that creates PDF files that are based to GNUPDF. It's running great when he's using a native Java code but when it's used through RPGLE, the program crashes when it processes images. He tracked it down when of them to loading an image from a .JAR file / removed the call from the code. It worked for a little while but it's crashing again for images loaded from IFS. Any ideas? Here's the code:
java.lang.NullPointerException

    at gnu.jpdf.PDFOutput.write(PDFOutput.java:114)
