Subject [jira] [Created] (ODFTOOLKIT-312) PATCH: Better exception handling for OdfPackage (swallows IOExceptions on save())
Date Fri, 23 Mar 2012 14:19:28 GMT
PATCH: Better exception handling for OdfPackage (swallows IOExceptions on save())

                 Key: ODFTOOLKIT-312
             Project: ODF Toolkit
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: odfdom
            Reporter: Jeremias Maerki
            Assignee: Devin Han
         Attachments: OdfPackageExceptionHandling.diff

Related thread:

Executive summary: OdfPackage does too much exception catching causing real problems not being
detected by client programs (because the exceptions are only logged). Similar patterns were
observed when reading an ODF package. The attached patch tries to introduce a better exception
handling throughout the OdfPackage class. Instead of throwing Exception, methods now throw
IOException and SAXException. The existing load-side fault tolerance is preserved but the
client can now abort processing if a potentially bad ODF file is read because exceptions thrown
in the ErrorHandlers are no longer swallowed.

I hope you find the proposed changes useful. They are backed by unit tests.
