Subject [jira] [Commented] (ODFTOOLKIT-302) getNamespaceURI() implementation in ODFDOM is not aware of duplicate namespace prefixes
Date Mon, 06 Feb 2012 22:30:59 GMT


Svante Schubert commented on ODFTOOLKIT-302:

Hi guys,

I have been travelling end of last week, therefore I was just able to review the patch in
detail today as I needed some time to work myself into the context of the XPath implementation
 (especially as JDK7 did a 'fix' in this area, which caused error messages/confusion -  more
details below).

Ashok was completely right about the problem his fix was quite good, still I fear he added
a small side effect.
As JavaDoc of the fixed/changed method, the method should return an empty iterator for prefixes,
if the namespaceURI was not found in the XML file. 
Frankly, spoken this was working before, but the new line
   mDuplicatePrefixesByUri.put(namespaceURI, prefixes);
alerted me to change the map (state) during a get-method call.

Therefore I would have reopened the issue and added a new patch, but this is not an available
option in JIRA to me - either I am missing rights or JIRA expects a different handling, therefore
some notes inline:

Finally, JDK7 changed the TreeSet implementation, see
"Area: API: Utilities
Synopsis: Due to an error in java.util.TreeMap, it was previously possible to insert invalid
null elements and elements not implementing Comparable into empty TreeMaps and TreeSets. Only
a single invalid element could be inserted into the empty TreeMaps or TreeSets; additional
elements would cause the expected NullPointerException or ClassCastException. Most other operations
upon the collection would also fail. As of JDK 7, inserting an invalid null element or an
element not implementing Comparable into an empty TreeMap or TreeSet throws a NullPointerException.

>From my current view, we have used with OdfStyleFamily a TreeSet, which implements a Comparator
that does allow NULL, so I can not follow their argumentation, as Set in general do allow
NULL, but I will not pick a battle here and decided to do a work around for OdfStyleFamily
as it happened in a private constructor:
private OdfStyleFamily(String name, OdfStyleProperty[] props), so I changed the constructor
and added a second one.

In addition, I  followed advises of Netbeans 7.1 (e.g. added brackets, etc.).
