Description Casey Dahlin 2014-03-29 22:22:40 UTC
Attempting to port my code to collada-dom 2.4.2, I discovered that dae.open now always returns NULL.

Looking at the code, it appears the issue happens here:

domCOLLADAProxy* DAE::openCommon(const string& path, daeString buffer) {
    string uri = makeFullUri(path);
    if (plugin->read(daeURI(*this, uri.c_str()), buffer) != DAE_OK)
        return NULL;
    return getRoot(uri);

the return NULL in the if statement is being triggered. That appears to come from here:

daeInt daeIOPluginCommon::read(const daeURI& uri, daeString docBuffer)
    // Make sure topMeta has been set before proceeding
    if (topMeta == NULL)
        return DAE_ERR_BACKEND_IO;


The topMeta variable should be populated by the owning DAE object at DAE::setIOPlugin on this line:

    int res = plugin->setMeta(getMeta(getDomCOLLADAID()));

The nested getDomCOLLADAID call is to this code:

daeInt getDomCOLLADAID(const char* specversion)
    if( specversion == NULL || strcmp(specversion,"1.5.0") == 0 ) {
        return ColladaDOM150::domCOLLADA::ID();
    if( specversion == NULL || strcmp(specversion,"1.4.1") == 0 ) {
        return ColladaDOM141::domCOLLADA::ID();
    return NULL;

You'll note we expect a specversion argument but have none passed, so we'll always return the version 150 ID it seems.

Thanks for reporting. I could reproduce the bug. As you said it seems like getDomCOLLADAID() returns the wrong version and therefore, the initialization fails.

I don't think this is a packaging bug. Could you report the bug upstream [1] ? I'll update once upstream fixed this. Also note that somebody already reported this bug on Sourceforge [2]. But since they switched to Github, reporting there would probably be a good idea.
