Description Martin Gieseking 2015-11-04 14:12:36 UTC
When trying to run one of the batik utilities (rasterizer or squiggle) on F23, they quit with the following exception:

java.security.AccessControlException: access denied ("java.net.NetPermission" "setDefaultAuthenticator")
	at java.security.AccessControlContext.checkPermission(AccessControlContext.java:472)
	at java.security.AccessController.checkPermission(AccessController.java:884)
	at java.lang.SecurityManager.checkPermission(SecurityManager.java:549)
	at java.net.Authenticator.setDefault(Authenticator.java:127)
	at org.apache.batik.apps.svgbrowser.Main.<init>(Main.java:411)
	at org.apache.batik.apps.svgbrowser.Main.main(Main.java:165)

Since I can't find a local configuration problem, I guess it's an issue with the policy settings applied to the applications.

Not reproducible for me on F22. I will try again on F23 after I upgrade my system.

Comment 2 Martin Gieseking 2015-11-05 09:04:46 UTC
OK, thanks for looking into this. I can confirm that the batik applications work on F22. It seems to be an issue with F23.

Comment 3 Mikolaj Izdebski 2015-11-06 11:57:39 UTC
Reproducible on F23.

Comment 4 Mikolaj Izdebski 2015-11-27 10:38:36 UTC
Fixed in batik-1.8-3

Comment 5 Mikolaj Izdebski 2015-11-27 13:36:17 UTC
The fix for this bug is ready and I've tested it. During testing I've found some other problems (such as broken TIFF output, bug #1286220). I will try to fix all these bugs in one update, which may delay the update.

Comment 6 Martin Gieseking 2015-11-27 13:43:12 UTC
OK, great. Thanks for taking care of all the flaws.
