PDF "ExtendedForm Authenticator" word incorrectly generated
Last modified: 2014-08-14 11:24:01 EDT
There is some bug in the PDF generated text that it doesn't find the word (Ctrl+F in adobe reader) "ExtendedFormAuthenticator" but it finds "ExtendedForm Authenticator". However looking into the text I cannot see a space between them.
The word is contained in page 127 in a source code section.
Work must be done to see if there are other words incorrectly generated.
I downloaded the PDF from the provided link and was able to search for "ExtendedFormAuthenticator" successfully (found on page 127, as advised).
It's possible a rebuild of the document has corrected this issue. Referring to QA for confirmation.
Verification failed for PDF from the documentation-devel.
PDF viewer integrated in Google Chrome searches correctly for "ExtendedFormAuthenticator", but Adobe Reader (v.9) requires "ExtendedForm Authenticator".
I don't know from where the problem comes, but there is at least one problem in the PDF. The "qdf --check" prints:
WARNING: JBoss_Enterprise_Application_Platform-6.1-Security_Guide-en-US.pdf (object 1677 0, file position 938226): expected endobj
Confirmed that the error still presents with Acroread 9.5.5.
Unfortunately this is not a bug that the documentation team can correct. It is arising from something in the build tool used to create the various documentation formats.
Raising a bug against Publican to see if this is correctable.
Unfortunately, checking to see if this presents with other terms is not feasible (as it would mean manually checking at least every Java term across the entire documentation suite against the PDF).
Bug 1065810 raised to query this with Publican team.
