Hello all!

In my jsp application, a report is generated in PDF format (by using itext).
On development enviroment (local server) it works's fine. But in production enviroment (external server) the following exception is throwed:

DocumentException: access denied ( /opt/tomcat5/work/Teste/ write)

This exception is throwed when the line bellow is executed:

//where the table it's full fill with a resultset

If it work's fine in a place and it dosen't in another one, with the same configuration (Tomcat 5, Linux and Mysql 4.x), where is the problem?

I think that the problem it's on the external server..... Am I rigth?

Thank's for your attention,

Are you starting Tomcat with the security manager turned on in the other environment? I would suspect that you are.

Well I don't know how the tomcat startup process work's ont the other enviroment. But the problem it's solved now... it was a file permission mistake.

Thank's for your attention....
