Description Dominik Stadler 2015-05-28 05:46:29 UTC
Seems we introduced a dependency to class Paragraph via commit "Stub a common WP paragraph class, needs uncommenting as XWPF implements/emulates", r1657712.

We should move this class to the main jar.

When this is done we should also adjust the text at http://poi.apache.org/document/index.html back to state that scratchpad.jar should not be necessary for ooxml based XWPFDocument.

I think that as of r1682212, having moved the SL and WP interfaces to core, the only part of OOXML which needs scratchpad is the ExtractorFactory

If someone else could verify, we can then put the documentation back, and note that dependency reason

I have now added additional steps to the "post-package" verification build at "src\integrationtest\build.xml" which uses the resulting jar-files from the assemble-step and ensures that most of the examples can be built without having scratchpad.jar in the classpath. 

The following list of files is excluded currently as it uses HWPF or other things from scratchpad.jar:


I also updated the documentation page, so this is fixed as far as I see.
