Hi John,

I'm actually just beginning to look into how the java jars are built so 
I may need corrected by someone.

I think the java files are "Built" from IDL files and packaged into the 
jar files during a build process.

I have only svn checked out the AOO code last night and begun looking.

For instance if you search the codebase for XPropertySet the only java 
files I have found are in QA type directories.

Have you tried to additionally set the CharBackTransparent boolean 
property as well [1].
