Subject Re: TextDocument.getListIterator() doesn't include lists in Sections
Date Tue, 31 Jul 2012 07:56:55 GMT
Hi Nick,

I would bet it is a bug.

We can not be sure, as it seems the former programmer had forgotten to
add some JavaDoc to tell us the reasoning behind the design.
Fact is the method being used "findNext(TextListElement ..)" from
AbstractListContainer is only searching on root level elements for lists.
Instead of a iteration an improvement could be to traverse the ODF XML
tree by recursion, or do the finding once (e.g. during parsing) and keep
a reference table up to date during run-time.

Sorry, not quite familiar with this module of this project. The Simple
API was once forked and developed by IBM and later rejoined.
By this split, a strict code review was avoided (e.g. JavaDoc otherwise
MUST had public methods), as downside of their liberties there will be
now no support by myself to problems they might have caused.

Best regards,
