  • What is the output of this command `java -jar plantuml-gplv2-1.2024.3.jar -version`?
  • What is the stack-trace of the Java Error?
commented Mar 14 by Sayed
  • output:

PlantUML version 1.2024.3 (Thu Feb 15 20:40:05 CET 2024)

(GPLv2 source distribution)

Java Runtime: OpenJDK Runtime Environment

JVM: OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM

Language: de

Country: DE


Dot version: dot - graphviz version 2.44.1 (20200629.0846)

Installation seems OK. File generation OK 

  • How i find the stack trace?  The only thing appears when i run the .jar file is this Java Virtual Machine Launcher with the Message:" A Java Exception has occured."
