> I'm using PDFBox in a FOP plug-in to embed PDF documents. The PDF images are cached in
memory through soft references. Therefore I do not know exactly when the COSDocument needs
to be closed. I do close it in the holder's finalize() method but the garbage collector sometimes
calls the COSDocument's finalizer before I have a chance to close it myself. With this patch
I'd like to introduce an option that lets me disable the warning and do a close() in the finalizer
in any case. I do think that the warning can be helpful for newbies (closing early is a good
idea when that's possible) but the warning to System.err is a problem in my case.
> If noone objects within 72 hours, I'm happy to apply the patch myself.
