I am in troubles with Tridion Linking. I am trying to install it in my .NET web application, but actually, Tridion Linking is not working, it is throwing an exception. The issue seems to come from Java layer. I can instantiate an object of, for example, PageLink type, however, problems comes when I try to access the methods which are defined in this type (GetLinkAsString method for example):

Response.Write(componentLink.GetLinkAsString("tcm:xx-xx-64","tcm:xx-xx", "tcm:0-0-0", "onClick=\"alert('I am a link')\"","Link for the text",true,false));

Finally, in presentation server (in my .NET web application) I have kept it simple, only API role installed and the same source files (DLLs, JARs) than in other environements where all works fine. I have edited the needed config files (XMLs) too (properly I think).

I see the following error:

Unhandled Execution Error 
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

I have Tridion 2011 SP 1 HR 1 with Java 6 u27 (updated to 6 u45) version installed (both 32 bits and 64 bits).

Only API Role installed. Basic configuration:

DLL (6 files): netrtsn.dll, Tridion.ContentDelivery.AmbientData.dll, Tridion.ContentDelivery.Configuration.dll, Tridion.ContentDelivery.dll, Tridion.ContentDelivery.Interop.dll xmogrt.dll

JAR (47 files): activation.jar, antlr.jar, aopalliance.jar, cd_broker.jar, cd_cache.jar, cd_core.jar, cd_datalayer.jar, cd_dynamic.jar, cd_linking.jar, cd_model.jar, cd_tcdl.jar, cd_wai.jar, commons-collections.jar, commons-dbcp.jar, commons-pool.jar, dom4j.jar, easylicense.jar, ejb3-persistence.jar, hibernate-annotations.jar, hibernate-commons-annotations.jar, hibernate-core.jar, hibernate-entitymanager.jar, hibernate-validator.jar, javassist.jar, jaxb-api.jar, jaxb-impl.jar, jcl-over-slf4j.jar, jdbcpool.jar, jta.jar, logback-classic.jar, logback-core.jar, persistence-api.jar, serializer.jar, slf4j-api.jar, spring-aop.jar, spring-asm.jar, spring-beans.jar, spring-context-support.jar, spring-context.jar, spring-core.jar, spring-expression.jar, spring-jdbc.jar, spring-orm.jar, spring-tx.jar, sqljdbc4.jar, stax-api.jar, xalan.jar.

CONFIG (5 files): cd_dynamic_conf.xml, cd_licenses.xml, cd_link_conf.xml, cd_storage_conf.xml, cd_wai_conf.xml

Default configuration: only edited cd_store_conf.

WEB CONFIG: Default configuration. Only applied:

                <add tagPrefix="tridion" namespace="Tridion.ContentDelivery.Web.UI" assembly="Tridion.ContentDelivery" />

Any ideas?

I guess Java 6 u 27 is the real issue, downgrade to Java 6 u 25 or upgrade to Java 6 u 31 onwards and try; it should resolve the issue.

Just to brief you that there are issues with Java 6 u 26 to Java 30 for Microsoft's sqljdbc jar (used by SDL Tridion).

For details, You may want to see this Question.

  • I am not sure if the real problem is the Java 6u27 version. I have other installations/environments with this version and works fine. In any case, this really seems to be a Java issue.

    If you are using SQL server as your database, then that Java version is the root cause of your issue.

  • Yes, I am using SQL server as my database... I will try upgrading Java to a newest version. I suppose that Java 6 u45 is supported, right? In the other hand I would like to understand why Java 6u27 are working in another environment (with SQL server database too)... Maybe because all the Tridion modules are in the same machine?

  • @DanielGLB: there could be many reason for that along with the one that you have mentioned. For specific reason, the environment needs to dig a bit Commented Jun 21, 2013 at 2:05
  • Still the same error with Java 6u45...

Add-on to Pankaj answer, Linking issue might cause due to wrong version of xmogrt.dll (32/64 bit).

According to your application, use current version of xmogrt.dll

How to identify my xmogrt.dll is 32/64 bit?

  1. Check the file version of DLL is
  2. If file size is
    • Less than 1 MB then it is 32 bit
    • Greater than 1 MB then it is 64 bit
  • In xmogrt.dll description (Properties > Description tab): "Native Runtime for x86_64 (...)" and greater than 1 MB. File version:
