This issue is still under investigation. As there is any update we will notify you.

I am getting the same error using your “example” application for Java and my own documents to compare. The comparison with the same documents work if I execute it online.

This query is answered here.


This issue is reproduced only when the API license is not set. However, we’ll further investigate this scenario. You can avoid getting this exception by setting a valid license.
