Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 47493] New: HSSFCell.setCellValue(String value) & HSSFRichTextString
Date Wed, 08 Jul 2009 02:31:32 GMT

           Summary: HSSFCell.setCellValue(String value) &
           Product: POI
           Version: 3.2-FINAL
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: major
          Priority: P2
         Component: HSSF
        AssignedTo: dev@poi.apache.org
        ReportedBy: apache@apconsult.de

The now deprecated method HSSFCell.setCellValue(String value)
has been changed to call the new method setCellValue(HSSFRichTextString value)
with a HSSFRichTextString Object.

The problem with that, is that a null String gets replaced with
a HSSFRichTextString Object with the value "" (i.e. length 0).

This broke our application, which I have fixed by calling

I believe the correct implementation of HSSFCell.setCellValue(String value)
should be:
if (value == null) {
} else {
setCellValue(new HSSFRichTextString(value));

This would be much more likely to be backward compatible with existing code.
I'm sure others will be having this problem, but have maybe not yet noticed
the subtle difference in their reports.
