    Default Problem printing PDF (Only caused when using the .jar file and not netbeans GUI)

    Hi Guys.

    Here is the thing. I have sample code on a java class (see it below), so I can perfectly create and display the PDF file on screen when I run the project from netbeans 6.9 ... however, when I create the .jar file for the project and try to execute it, then I get an Error message saying that an exception has happened (this is not handled, despite the existing try catch)... Could you please try it yourselve and/or help me out with this...

    import java.util.Date;
    import com.lowagie.text.Document;
    import com.lowagie.text.Paragraph;
    import com.lowagie.text.pdf.PdfWriter;
    import javax.swing.JOptionPane;

    public class GeneratingPDF_V2 {

    public static void main(String[] args) {
    try {
    OutputStream file = new FileOutputStream(new File("C:\\GD\\Test.pdf"));

    Document document = new Document();
    PdfWriter.getInstance(document, file);;
    document.add(new Paragraph("Blabla"));
    document.add(new Paragraph(new Date().toString()));


    } catch (Exception e) {

    JOptionPane.showMessageDialog(null,e.getMessage()) ;

    }//END OF GeneratingPDF_V2 --------------------------------------------------------------

    If you're forever cleaning cobwebs, it's time to get rid of the spiders.

    As EJP says over there, what is the exception?
    Full stack trace and identify the line in your code it occurs on.
