Subject DO NOT REPLY [Bug 49873] XSSFFormulaEvaluator.evaluate() can not handle blank cells
Date Mon, 06 Sep 2010 05:44:09 GMT

I do not know if it is allowed to comment on resolved issues (if not, please
excuse my ignorance), but I would like to point out that while I understand
that you want both implementations to work the same, I think it would be easier
to return a blank cell in the following situation:

CellValue cellValue = evaluator.evaluate(cell);
switch(cellValue.getCellType()) {

This will throw a nullpointer exception if evaluator returns "null" for blank
cells. It is of course entirely feasible to check for "== null" before doing
the switch, but isn't that partly the point of having a "CELL_TYPE_BLANK"?
