Problem running GroupDocs.Annotation 3.1.0 due to license issue

Hi,


I downloaded the GroupDocs.Annotation 3.1.0 java sample code from the github repository. Tried running it but it says that the GroupDocs.Total.Java.lic file is missing. I didn’t get any license file with the zip file i downloaded from the github as well as the annotation api.

It was written that a temporary free license can be obtained .Can you guide me with the steps.

As well i get the below error on executing the servlet code given in github repo for the annotation api.I commented out the license function part and executed it.

Error: class com.groupdocs.annotation.internal.c.a.pd.e.d.a.aM: At most 4 elements (for any collection) can be viewed in evaluation mode.

Please help for the same.

Thanks,
Manpreet Bedi

I would also need assistence on the same topic. I have the same error, When I don’t change anything in the project.properties file I get a FileNotFound exception, when I comment out the license property I get an error as well. I also tried using an old temporary license which we used for evaluting the last version with the same result.


I tried to get a temporary license. When I click on “Get Quote or Temporary Licence” on the page https://purchase.groupdocs.com/pricing/annotation I cannot choose any GroupDocs product only aspose.

We recommend you to create a thread in GroupDocs.Purchase forum for the questions about license and purchase as concerned team will assist you more precisely there.

You need to provide a license file in order to run the application.

I found the wizard for requesting the temporary license via Contact Us Page


https://purchase.groupdocs.com/purchase/pricing-info-step-1-of-4.aspx

You can get your lincense from there.

The candy.pdf is now displayed properly but I Cannot delete any made annotations. I get a NumberFormatException in DeleteAnnotationServlet:30.

Hi,


Thanks martin, that helped me obtain a temporary license.But still the same issue remains, as after including the license.When i try executing the code, the code shows error as :

Could not initialize class com.groupdocs.ui.Utils

I found out its due to the loadLicense function being called in the static block. When i comment out the code in static block ,it runs fine.But then i need to include it as i won’t be able to proceed further without loading the license.

So, please provide a solution for this.

Regards,
Manpreet Bedi
