I am running a servlet and it gets stuck at a certain line and shots out:
The ine above in my servlet is where it gets stuck line # 51 which is:
image = Jimi.getImage(f);
I thought it was because the JIMI jar was not in the folder, but it not it when I take that out the error gets more specific. I listed the message at the bottom. Works great for Windows just not Unix and I hae code for jpg. & GIF, it works finf for jpg. I have listed the code under the error message:

It looks like you're getting the file name from a web form and using it in the getImage method. If it is working in wndows adn ot in unix it is most likely a case sensitivity issue. You might want to convert the file name passed in to all upper or lower case dependng on how they are in the file system.
hope that helps

I get an error message when it cannot find the file, and liek I said it works for the JPEG part just not GIF.
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
