Please refer to the JIRA
I am unable to write Chinese content into a PDF using EmbeddedFonts.java from JIRA 1705. Later I found way to fix it by feeding in the "arialuni.ttf" instead of LiberationSans-Regular.ttf from the example. I had confirmed the Chinese PDF generation by writing a hardcoded Chinese data in my example.
Later I had extended this piece of logic to write the desired PDF in my application but got into "java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: U+008A is not available in this font's encoding: WinAnsiEncoding". Please advise.
1. From my application, i call an external Webservice and that returns the Chinese + English content in response as a String,
2. I read this response string using UTF-8 as the Charset and unmarshal it to Java bean using JAXRB.
3. To the contentStream.drawString() i passed the string calling the getter method on the pojo which has Chinese data stored in a String variable. Here's where i am getting the above exception. Please help me to fix this.
I am using PDFBox version 2.0.0.-RC3. Your help is much appreciated.
Also the generated PDF file is on MBs, i believe this huge size is because of the feed of arialuni.ttf which is of size 23 MB.Is there a way we can reduce the size of the output PDF file. Do we have an alternate to arialuni.ttf? Please advise.
