Date Tue, 06 Nov 2012 16:58:13 GMT


Svante Schubert commented on ODFTOOLKIT-346:

For later review/testing, the XML attributes relevant to the protection feature can be found
in the ODF 1.2 specification at
(and below).

>                 Key: ODFTOOLKIT-346
>                 URL:
>             Project: ODF Toolkit
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: simple api
>            Reporter: Kejia Ye
> Propose to add a new API to create protected section, which can be used to prevent contents
being modified in editors.
> This feature may refers to three parts:
> 1. new API to create section in TextDocument.
> 2. new API to change the protection status of a section, and also allow user to specify
a password.
>    Regarding to the protection key digest algorithm, we can just provide the default
one "SHA-1", which is also accepted by OpenOffice as its authentication procedure. An ProtectionKeyDigestProvider
interface should be kept to let users define and extend other alternative algorithms.
> 3. support insert more contents into section in addition to paragraph.
>    Some of the cotents, like image and textbox, is already supported by bonding to a
paragraph. So we may need to implement other kind of objects, like table and list which are
common used as well.
