I would like to remove all content from a XWPFTableCell. But there seems to be no way of doing this.

I can remove paragraphs from a XWPFTableCell, by using the removeParagraph(int pos) method, but then I am left with 2 problems:

* the removeParagraph(int pos) method does not change the "bodyElements" member, which gives problems when later getBodyElements() is called, since the removed paragraph is still in the list
* I am unable to remove other content from the XWPFTableCell, like for example a XWPFTable

As workaround I currently set all the runs of all the paragraphs to the text "" and I remove all the TableRows of every XWPFTable that is in the cell. The problem with this workaround is that I end up with a lot of "enters" in the document.

The problem seems to have been resolved in the latest poi version.

1. removeParagraph will change bodyElements
2. You can remove the table in the cell through removeTable
