Duplicate name exists when using transformDocument() function

Hi all,


I am trying to use the transformDocument function to convert a text file into a pdf file.


I have a custom content type (text file) with a custom action - this action calls the custom web script to convert to pdf.

For one time transformation , it works fine. However, if I modify content in the same file then try to convert this into pdf, it raises the duplicate name error.


In the custom webscript file:


var nodeRef = utils.getNodeFromString(args["nodeRef"]);

var newPdf = nodeRef.transformDocument("application/pdf");

model.pdfNodeRef = newPdf;


I tried exception handlings to catch this error.

I also tried to add the version name to newPdf node.


Could anyone give me some suggestions please?


Please note that I am working on Alfresco 5.1.1

Thank you
