Transform to PDF and Copy to same space

Question asked by sanket on Apr 16, 2010
Latest reply on May 19, 2010 by savic.prvoslav
I want to apply a rule on space that will convert the uploaded documents to PDF and the converted file will fall
in the same space.

Alfresco's built-in rule converts file to PDF but asks for destination (where to copy). I dont want this.
I want that the nodeReference that I pass, the document shud be uploaded in that space and
the PDF converted should also fall in that space.

I am using TransformActionExecuter and TransformHandler for it. I am passing mime-type as application/pdf.
THe line on which I receive NullPointerException is:
  copyNodeRef = copyService.copy(actionedUponNodeRef, destinationParent, destinationAssocTypeQName, destinationAssocQName, false);

Please help.
