Null pointer on preview of .docx file uploaded via Nuxeo .NET SDK

I'm evaluating the Nuxeo FT10.1 platform using the VMware virtual machine available on the Nuxeo website. My problem comes when I upload a .docx file through the .NET SDK: the file is correctly uploaded, but when I access to the document through the web interface, the preview window only shows the following message:

{"entity-type":"exception","status":500,"message":"java.lang.NullPointerException"}

This only happens with .docx files uploaded via SDK. The files uploaded through the web are previewed correctly.

Here is the code that uploads the file:

public async void CreateDocument(string documentPath, string repositoryPath)
{
    using (var client = new Client(RepositoryEndpoint, new Authorization(Username, Password)))
    {
        var folder = (Document)await client.DocumentFromPath(repositoryPath).Get();

        var uploader = client.Uploader()
                .SetChunked(true)
                .SetChunkSize(1024);

        await uploader.AddFile(documentPath).UploadFiles();

        var documents = await uploader.Operation("FileManager.Import")
                .SetContext("currentDocument", folder.Path)
                .Execute();

        Console.WriteLine("Operation complete: CreateDocument");
    }
}

Any idea?

Thanks!

EDIT:

Here's the exception thrown when I access to the document preview:

Hi Alfonso,

it seems a problem with the conversion process from .docx to .pdf. Nuxeo uses the convert command “any2pdf” based on soffice (OpenOffice) and it needs a command line convert library to make the preview. _You can find the “any2pdf” contribution here: https://github.com/nuxeo/nuxeo/blob/master/nuxeo-services/nuxeo-platform-convert/src/main/resources/OSGI-INF/convert-service-contrib.xml_

Please check the conversion with soffice is running properly to check the preview converted (PDF) blob.

Regards, VS!

Hi Victor,

The conversion seems to work correctly: I've tested it through the command line with the same file that provokes the exception and it runs fine. Any idea about the next step?

Thanks for your time!

Hi!, check your uploaded file mimetype (DOCX). It's probably, converter service doesn't detected the file format to prepare the valid conversion to pdf for the preview.

Hello again Victor,

You're right, it seems that there's some problem with the mime-type of the file. The original file is correct, but something is lost in the upload process somehow: if I download the same file from Nuxeo and try to open it, Microsoft Word shows an alert indicating that the file is damaged and some elements cannot be showed.

I'll try to figure how to specify the mime-type of the file in the SDK operation, but at least I'm on the correct track now.

Thanks again for your time and help!

Regards!

Hi Alfonso,

the file server.log contains the NullPointerException cause. Please check it.

Thanks for your answer Victor!

Sorry, I had already checked the log, but I forgot to include the trace. I've edited the question. I should remark that the issue only happens with files uploaded via SDK. The files uploaded through the web interface work correctly.

Thanks again for your help!
