Subject About openxml handling code
Date Tue, 28 Jan 2014 12:47:02 GMT

I am very new to the OpenOffice code, and need some help understanding the
open-xml handling code. Could someone please answer the following

 i. There seem to be two distinct pieces of code that do open-xml parsing
in different ways. There's one part in "writerfilter" that has some
generated code (xslt based) that provides factories and classes for
creating different object types. And then, for sc and sd, all of the
parsing code is in the "oox" module and seems to be hand-written. Why is
that? Are there plans to move the parsing code to a common module? (perhaps
oox ...)

ii. Probably a related question - why are drawing-ml shapes and pictures
not supported in sw, while they are supported in sc and sd? The parsing
code seems to be there. The tag wps:wsp has very little delta with the p:sp
tag. Is this in works?
