Subject [Bug 55330] Enhance Type Safety of org.apache.poi.ss.usermodel Interface APIs
Date Wed, 31 Jul 2013 10:13:52 GMT

--- Comment #2 from Nick Burch <apache@gagravarr.org> ---
Two comments and one query:
 - Before defining the Enum, there'd need to be some time spent looking over
the File Format Documentation to ensure that all the different options are
actually defined, and none have been missed
 - As well as this, there would need to be a check done of all the test
documents we have to ensure that no extra values in common use

 - How would we handle a file where the value written in it when reading wasn't
one of the expected ones? (Could be slightly invalid, from a different program,
reserved value in use etc - real world files are often messy!)

It might be worth picking one of the smaller, more self contained cases from
the list, and trying to work up a patch for just that. A patch will mean code
to review and discuss (rather than just in the abstract), and would offer more
of a chance to see the best ways to handle the comments+question above.
