references to OpenOffice.org in the wiki

2020-11-17 Thread John D'Orazio
I see that in the wiki pages at https://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/ there are
still many references to OpenOffice.org . Am I correct in understanding
that this was the old brand name, and now it would be more correct to refer
to "Apache OpenOffice" or more simply "OpenOffice"? Is it alright if I
change the references from  OpenOffice.org  to Apache OpenOffice or simply
OpenOffice?

Re: Tools->Options->OpenOffice->Java freezing on Linux x64

2020-11-17 Thread John D'Orazio
On WSL2 I start GUI programs by installing VcXSrv on Windows 10, and then
in my bash profile I put:
*export DISPLAY=$(awk '/nameserver / {print $2; exit}' /etc/resolv.conf
2>/dev/null):0*
In order to get the Italian keyboard to work I have to set these parameters
when setting up VcXSrv:
-xkbmodel pc105 -xkblayout it -xkbvariant winkeys

In any case I'm guessing this issue is probably due to the WSL2
environment, which is kind of mixed with the Windows environment (it
actually picks up the PATH environment variable from Windows!)

Tools->Options->OpenOffice->Java freezing on Linux x64

2020-11-16 Thread John D'Orazio
Can anyone confirm if this is a real problem or if it's just me? When
launching OpenOffice 4.1.8 x64 on Linux (Ubuntu 18.04), if I open
Tools->Options->OpenOffice->Java , instead of listing the JREs on my system
after a minute or so, the whole OpenOffice instance just freezes. I've
tried a number of times on two different computers, even leaving it for
over 10 minutes, but no luck, I had to "sudo pkill -f soffice".

On one instance I believe I had a default JDK 15 when I installed
OpenOffice 4.1.8 and I wanted to make sure that OpenOffice would instead
use JDK 11, but I couldn't change it from this menu item.
On the other instance I had JDK 11 as the active java version.

I am using OpenJDK in both instances, on WSL 2 on Windows 10.

Writer add-on with system dependencies

2020-11-08 Thread John D'Orazio
I now have a dilemma, and I figure this is the best place to ask. I have
succeeded in getting the *Chrome Embedded Framework* to work correctly in
my Writer add-on, both in Windows and on Linux.

In Linux however, if the Chrome browser hasn't already been installed, a
number of system dependencies are required in order for the Chrome Embedded
Framework to function properly inside of Java Swing.
This means that in order to install the add-on in OpenOffice writer, these
system dependencies must be met first. I've been working over how to go
about doing this, probably the best path to take would be a shell script
that takes care of setting up the environment correctly. However, in order
to launch a shell script from Java at runtime, that attempts to install
system dependencies, either I would have to create a prompt asking the user
to type in their system password in order to allow the Java runtime to
launch a process with  *sudo apt-get install* , or I would have to ask the
end user to go to the command line and launch the shell script themselves
before using the Writer add-on.

When creating a similar add-on for Microsoft Word, I was able to create an
executable package installer which takes care of all system dependencies,
and which requires elevated privileges in order to install.
I'm not sure what the best approach here would be, because this can also
define the philosophy behind the software that the add-on is being
installed in. There's room to doubt whether asking a user for their
password from within a Writer add-on is good practice, even if explaining
why it is needed. Asking a user to go to the terminal and launch a shell
script before installing or being able to fully use the add-on could be
considered a bit daunting for some end users.

Specifically the system dependencies that need to be met, at least as far
as I could gather in my tests so far, are:

sudo apt-get install gconf-service libasound2 libatk1.0-0
libatk-bridge2.0-0 libc6 libcairo2 libcups2 libdbus-1-3 libexpat1
libfontconfig1 libgcc1 libgconf-2-4 libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0 libglib2.0-0
libgbm-dev libgtk-3-0 libnspr4 libpango-1.0-0 libpangocairo-1.0-0
libstdc++6 libx11-6 libx11-xcb1 libxcb1 libxcomposite1 libxcursor1
libxcursor-dev libxdamage1 libxext6 libxfixes3 libxi6 libxrandr2
libxrender1 libxss1 libxtst6 ca-certificates fonts-liberation
libappindicator1 libnss3 lsb-release xdg-utils


Any suggestions on how to go about ensuring system dependencies are met,
without introducing any dubious practices for add-ons, or daunting tasks
for end users? And might I hint here again at the possibility, if the
Chrome Embedded Framework were to be integrated into OpenOffice itself,
then system dependencies would be taken care of upon installation of
OpenOffice, and Java add-ons would be able to simply add the necessary jar
files without worrying about system dependencies or environment variables
or linking native libraries. Thoughts?

update NSS libraries

2020-11-07 Thread John D'Orazio
Hello all, ss I continue building and debugging the next release of my
Writer add-on, in which I'm attempting to include the *Chrome Embedded
Framework* in it's Java flavoured build (I'm using the builds from this
release

), I've stumbled upon the following situation in my Linux build:

The Chrome Embedded Framework is requiring a *libnss3.so* and
*libnssutil3.so* version of at least *3.22*, however OpenOffice also
utilizes these libraries and is packaging version *3.14*. Since the
OpenOffice libraries are the first ones picked up (I believe from the
*LD_LIBRARY_PATH* environment variable or similar), it is preventing my
add-on from building, complaining that CEF needs at least version 3.22. As
a test, I went and backed up the *libnss3.so* and *libnssutil3.so* found in*
/opt/openoffice4/program/* , and I copied my system's libraries to that
same folder. My system's libraries are at version *3.49* . After this I was
able to build the add-on and debug->run in OpenOffice, and at least at
first sight I didn't see any adverse effects in OpenOffice from the newer
NSS libraries.

Would it be feasible to update the NSS libraries in a next release of
OpenOffice, say 4.1.9? Carl Marcum was just confirming that in the current
4.1.8 release the packaged libraries are in fact at version 3.14.

Another idea, I just thought I'd throw it out there, as I've succeeded in
integrating the Chrome Embedded Framework in my Windows release and I see
the advantages of this, it allows to use all the latest web technologies
such as HTML5, CSS3, V8 javascript etc. etc. Perhaps it could be
interesting at some point to consider integrating the Chrome Embedded
Framework into OpenOffice itself. This could attract younger developers who
are often more versed in Web technologies than in C++ / Java, and would
allow to create some interesting User Interfaces, either in OpenOffice
itself or in the add-ons for OpenOffice that would be able to reuse an
already packaged CEF / JCEF framework. This framework is being widely
adopted now: VSCode uses it, Electron uses it, I believe Steam uses it, a
lot of program interfaces are now turning to Web technologies. Perhaps this
could be something new and interesting that would "distinguish" OpenOffice
in some way? Just a thought. In the meantime I'll pursue adopting it myself
for my own add-on and see where it brings me.

Re: [DISCUSS] Groovy UNO Extensions

2020-11-06 Thread John D'Orazio
A Gradle implementation sounds good to me! I'm currently packaging some
libraries into the repo of my java plugin, but other developers interested
in participating in my project asked if I could implement Gradle to
simplify handling the dependencies.
And those helper methods look good! That would simplify things quite a bit.

Might I take the opportunity to ask, I'm currently in the process of
packaging JCEF (Java Chrome Embedded Framework) into my plugin. This
requires adding the path to the native libraries to the system path. I've
been successful in the build on Windows using JDK 1.8 since I'm able to use
reflection and reset the "java.library.path" at runtime. I haven't been as
successful with a Linux build, where I believe I need to set the
LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable to accommodate the path to the JCEF
native libraries. While in the testing phase just trying to get it working
on Linux, I've tried manually setting the  LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment
variable on the command line before launching the "Debug install" from
Netbeans, however I'm seeing at runtime that the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable
is being overwritten, I'm guessing by the Ant script? I see three
references to LD_LIBRARY_PATH in build-uno-impl.xml but I don't think I can
change anything there? I believe that file is automatically generated by
the Netbeans plugin, in fact it says at the very top of the file:



I confess I have hardly any experience with Ant, until now I've depended on
the AOO Netbeans plugin taking care of that and it's been enough for my
purposes. Now I'm finding that I need to link to other native libraries and
so I probably need to edit the Ant scripts to set environment variables and
"java.library.path". Any pointers on how I should go about doing so?

Re: help needed building AOO for the first time

Are you following one of these guides :

https://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/Documentation/Building_Guide_AOO

https://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/Documentation/Building_Guide_AOO/Building_on_Windows

I confess I haven't done a build for a year or two now, but when I did a
successful build I contributed to the page in the first link to document
the process, and others have contributed in the meantime to make it
possible to build with 64bit cygwin.
Now that Windows 10 has WSL2 it might be interesting to try a build that
way instead of using cygwin, but for a first successful build I would
suggest following the above guides step by step.

Re: extensions description xml doesn't exist

2019-02-25 Thread John D'Orazio
Not being an expert in xml structures, it does seem to me however that the
url isn't really to be considered an actual url, I guess it's just a string
(called a URI ) to identify the elements in this xml tree as belonging to
this family of elements.
https://stackoverflow.com/a/11602530
So in that case it's really indifferent if the "URL" resolves or not, so I
guess I can safely ignore the warning message in Netbeans (and I'm not sure
why netbeans even tries to resolve that as a url?)

Re: extensions description xml doesn't exist

I don't see an XML descriptor at extensions.openoffice.org ? Should it be
at a URL such as https://extensions.openoffice.org/description/2006 ?

extensions description xml doesn't exist

2019-02-24 Thread John D'Orazio
Today I was rebuilding an extension I had written 4 years ago, and I just
happened to look at the "Retriever Output" window in Netbeans, and I found
this error:

23-feb-2019 19.14.23 : Retrieving Location:
http://openoffice.org/extensions/description/2006
Error: File not found in the specified address :
http://www.openoffice.org/extensions/description/2006


If I try to navigate to http://openoffice.org/extensions/description/2006 I
get a "page not found".

In the wiki the only reference is to this page:
https://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/Documentation/DevGuide/Extensions/Description_of_XML_Elements

Should this xml descriptor still exist in this location?

Just wondering if after this update the configure script still runs fine?
About a year or so ago when I was testing a cygwin x64 build process, I
noticed that after updating config.guess and config.sub in the cygwin
terminal the configure script starting choking on config.sub. Were you able
to get past this?

Unfortunately I don't have my system set up to build ATM, unfortunately my
"powerful" HP laptop comes with a miserly 128GB SSD as the main drive and
Visual Studio can't be installed on a secondary drive... I'm having a heck
of a time finding a bigger compatible SSD but I hope to resolve this soon,
and set up my build system again...

As these obstacles are removed the Step by step guide can be updated, I had
opened a section about building with cywgwin x64 and I started jotting
provisional notes down, I'd say this looks like the time to update them:
https://wiki.openoffice.org/wiki/Documentation/Building_Guide_AOO/Step_by_step#Testing_build_with_Cygwin_64_bit

It is also confusing that when searching for "Apache OpenOffice" one of the
main results is a user group by the name "Apache OpenOffice" which claims
to be the "official page" for Apache OpenOffice:
https://www.facebook.com/groups/338330086179568/
"This is the official Facebook page for the Apache OpenOffice project. Here
you can find information about the OpenOffice development status and other
important information." I don't think a "group" should be called an
"official page", a group is usually a place for discussion among users
where anyone can write pretty much anything. A facebook group doesn't
usually officialy represent anything.

Re: Reporting broken download link

Hello, please make sure you are downloading from the correct places. You
can go here to find the correct package to download for your environment:
http://www.openoffice.org/download/index.html . I have just tested once
more on Windows 10 using IE Explorer 11 and it works correctly. It links to
the sourceforge mirror and you get a notification from Internet Explorer if
you want to run or save. Please make sure you are choosing one of these two
options to continue with the download.

Re: Failure to build on Windows 10

2016-10-18 Thread John D'Orazio
Not sure if this will fix but I myself found that avoiding paths with
spaces can fix a number of errors. So I had the Windows SDK installed to a
custom path where I substituted spaces with underscores. Then in my
configure script I have:

SDK_PATH="D:\Microsoft_SDKs\Windows\v7.0"

As for the JDK home path, I was not able to customize the installation path
but you can get the short form of the path using the cygpath tool. For
example:

cygpath -m -s "C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.8.0_73"

will give you "C:/PROGRA~2/Java/JDK18~1.0_7", so in my configure script I
use:

--with-jdk-home="C:/PROGRA~2/Java/JDK18~1.0_7"

Same with NSIS, I installed it to a custom path with no spaces and in my
configure script I have:

--with-nsis-path="D:/NSIS"

For dmake and epm I am using the sourceforge mirrors as suggested by Andrea
Pescetti:

--with-dmake-url="
http://sourceforge.net/projects/oooextras.mirror/files/dmake-4.12.tar.bz2;
--with-epm-url="
https://sourceforge.net/projects/oooextras.mirror/files/epm-3.7.tar.gz;

Maybe give this a try and see if it helps any?

I still don't quite get what this phrase is trying to express, and it
really sounds like Yoda to me too. I would certainly try to rephrase it so
it flows better. My understanding is that this is what it's trying to get
across:
"You will often find in the mailing lists that a shortcut notation is used
to refer to the same lists. Writing a list name in full, like
dev@openoffice.apache.org can be tedious. So you will often see it called
just "dev"."

So yes I am evidently building from aoo-trunk. I'll update the wiki with

I actually did see an error in the packaging phase, but it didn't seem to
affect the final output, I still got the setup.exe which worked just fine,
and I can open and use soffice.exe just fine after running setup. This is
the error I got:

Not sure what that might affect.

Re: building on Windows 10 breaks at guistdio.exe

2016-09-19 Thread John D'Orazio
I wound up building in stages, since the build was breaking here and there.
I just picked it up from where it left off as I fixed things. So I don't
have a single output... unless there is a log file that collects various
build stages together into one single output?
I would also recommend installing as many packages in cygwin as possible
without going through the extra step of installing lynx or apt-cyg... While
that does make the environment more similar to a linux build environment,
it's still an extra step and I believe it could be indicated as a second
possibliity. Somewhere in the Step by Step guide I added which packages to
choose in the cygwin interface if installing them from the cygwin
interface. I think installing the packages from the cygwin interface should
be indicated as the first step to take when first installing cygwin, adding
all the necessary packages along with the first install.
The only package I couldn't find from the cygwin interface was the Perl
LWP::UserAgent package, so I installed that using "cpan -i LWP::UserAgent".

Re: building on Windows 10 breaks at guistdio.exe

2016-09-19 Thread John D'Orazio
I have now successfully completed the build on Windows 10, and after
changing the install path of NSIS to one without spaces, packaging also
completed successfully. I have added "Windows 10" alongside "Windows 7" and
"Windows 8.1" in the Step by Step guide.

Re: building on Windows 10 breaks at guistdio.exe

2016-09-19 Thread John D'Orazio
I installed some more things in my build environment such as the Windows
Drive Kit and I enabled the atl flags. I cleaned the whole build and
started over again with new config and using the multiprocessor and multi
threading capability, and have now made it close to the end of the build.
Only the last instsetoo_native module remains.

This last module is not completing, I keep getting perl child_fork_process
issues with address already busy etc.

I've been trying with solutions I'm finding online with a dash rebaseall,
haven't succeeded yet but will attempt again shortly.

I also read somewhere that maybe using 64 bit cygwin can resolve the
occupied addresses and child_fork_process errors. I made an attempt at
getting the build environment ready in 64 bit cygwin but configure is
complaining about not finding Visual Studio C++, while this does not happen
in 32 bit cygwin (I'm passing in the with-cl-home flag so it shouldn't have
any problem finding it... I'm reading it has something to do with registry
keys, idk I have to look into this better).

I'm noticing that even in this page that is considered an official guide to
building, the epm module is downloaded from msweet.org and not from the
sourceforge oooextras mirror. Does it make any difference? Was it really
patched, or can it be downloaded just the same from the msweet.org url?

It's good to know about the sourceforge copy of epm too, I'll update some
of the wiki links that are pointing to third party links.

Re: building on Windows 10 breaks at guistdio.exe

2016-09-15 Thread John D'Orazio
Patricia you are correct, after a few more attempts the desktop module did
build successfully. Now I'm up to the postprocess module, with this error:

Entering /cygdrive/d/source/aoo-trunk/main/postprocess/packcomponents

dmake:  Error: -- `/cygdrive/d/source/aoo-trunk/main/solver/420/
wntmsci12.pro/xml/chartcontroller.component' not found, and can't be made

1 module(s):
postprocess
need(s) to be rebuilt

Reason(s):

ERROR: error 65280 occurred while making
/cygdrive/d/source/aoo-trunk/main/postprocess/packcomponents

When you have fixed the errors in that module you can resume the build by
running:

build --all:postprocess


Any ideas on this "chartcontroller.component"?

building on Windows 10 breaks at guistdio.exe

2016-09-14 Thread John D'Orazio
So I've taken courage thanks also to the work done by Patricia Shanahan on
building OpenOffice in Windows 7 and Windows 8.1. I'm using Windows 10, and
I've sorted through the first few obstacles and my build has now been
running for 5-6 hours without any trouble. Until now that is. It just broke
while building "guistdio.exe" in the desktop module. I'm not really seeing
much information that can help me though, can any pick out what the trouble
might be? Here is the last part of the build output:

Thank you Patricia for your contribution to this, it has encouraged me to
give the building process a shot on my own Windows 10 system. I've made a
couple of changes to the step-by-step instructions as I followed along and
ran into a few issues, for example the dmake url was dead and needed to be
substituted with a working link from sourceforge, and the paths for the
Windows 7 SDK and DirectX SDK needed to be changed to paths without any
spaces (the build process was getting blocked by this). Also the necessary
perl modules hadn't been mentioned so I've added those in also. My build
has been running for about 5-6 hours now and has not yet finished, at least
it hasn't terminated with any errors so far! If it does terminate
successfully then I'll add "Windows 10" alongside Windows 7 and Windows 8.1
in the step-by-step guide.

Re: dmake

2016-09-14 Thread John D'Orazio
I myself just ran into the problem of the missing apache-extras link, I've
used a sourceforge link for my build:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/oooextras.mirror/files/dmake-4.12.tar.bz2.
Most of the links indicated in your github repo's README are dead links...
I believe a downloadable tarball is useful for the building process, the
sourceforge tarball seems to be working for me so far (it's my first build,
and it's still building, but it's gotten past the initial dmake
installation stage at least).

Re: help how to create a patch

2015-09-22 Thread John D'Orazio
Damjan thank you for the interest, xPropertySet is coming from the current
ViewCursor:

//In the initialize method of the main class we get the XFrame of our
current application
m_xFrame = (com.sun.star.frame.XFrame)UnoRuntime.queryInterface(
com.sun.star.frame.XFrame.class, object[0]);
m_xController = m_xFrame.getController();
m_xModel = (XModel) xController.getModel();
m_xTextDocument = (XTextDocument)
UnoRuntime.queryInterface(XTextDocument.class,m_xModel);

//Then at some point we get the text range that corresponds with current
cursor position in document, and the XPropertySet of that XTextRange
XTextViewCursorSupplier xViewCursorSupplier =
(XTextViewCursorSupplier)
UnoRuntime.queryInterface(XTextViewCursorSupplier.class,m_xController);
m_xViewCursor = xViewCursorSupplier.getViewCursor();
XTextRange xTextRange =
m_xViewCursor.getText().createTextCursorByRange(m_xViewCursor);
XPropertySet xPropertySet =
(XPropertySet)UnoRuntime.queryInterface(
XPropertySet.class, xTextRange);

//Then we want to set the text color and the text background color starting
from the current cursor position to a value chosen by the user of our plugin
Color userChosenTextColor = Color.BLUE; //let's just use
blue for this example, in my actual plugin I am using JColorChooser
Color userChosenBackgroundColor = Color.YELLOW; //again
we'll just use yellow, in the actual plugin I am again using JColorChooser


xPropertySet.setPropertyValue("CharColor", userChosenTextColor.getRGB());
xPropertySet.setPropertyValue("CharBackColor",
userChosenBackgroundColor.getRGB());

//Then we insert text into the document starting from the current cursor
position, the properties of which should reflect the properties set on the
XTextRange through the XPropertySet for that range
m_xText.insertString(xTextRange, "This is a test with BLUE
text and YELLOW background", false);

The results of the above code is a Blue colored text with no background
color (it should have a Yellow background). However this workaround in the
above code will work to give a Yellow background:

xPropertySet.setPropertyValue("CharBackColor",
userChosenBackgroundColor.getRGB() & ~0xFF00);

I hope this helps.

Re: help how to create a patch

2015-09-22 Thread John D'Orazio
Ok I'll take a look at that area of the wiki, in the meantime I have found
that the Writer code is under the main/sw folder (in fact I corrected a
page of the wiki that said it was under main/sd, which is instead the Draw
application...)

I posted some code samples in the forum thread that I opened and that I
posted in the first message of this thread.

Let me try to explain again. Basically, if you try setting the
"CharBackColor" property from Java using an RGB integer value from a Java
Color object, it simply doesn't work. I can "manually" set a value that
works by passing an RGB integer value with an "empty" alpha bit, for
example *xPropertySet.setProperty("CharBackColor", 0x00FF)* will
successfully set the text background color to Red.

However, when working with the Java Color object, the alpha bit is
automatically set by the Java Color object to 0xFF (which corresponds to
full opacity, whereas 0x00 actually corresponds with full transparency).

In my understanding, OpenOffice doesn't support alpha transparency for
background color and therefore assumes a value of 0x00 for the alpha bit,
and if any other value than 0x00 is set in the alpha bit OpenOffice just
doesn't like it and winds up not displaying the background color at all.

This normally isn't a problem with Basic, because with Basic the color
operations don't automatically set the alpha bit. You can create an RGB
integer with Basic that has no alpha bit. You cannot however with the Java
Color object: *Color.YELLOW.getRGB()* in Java will give you an integer that
has the alpha bit set to 0xFF (= full opacity) by default. And OpenOffice
isn't liking it.

So when working in Java, I have found it necessary to clear the alpha bit
before passing in the integer value: *Color.YELLOW.getRGB() & ~0xFF00* does
the trick here.

It took me a while to figure out what was going on here and to figure out
the necessary workaround with this bitwise operation. I don't think that
this is intended behaviour, it shouldn't be necessary to explicitly clear
the alpha bit with a bitwise operation in order to set the Character
Background Color. I'm figuring maybe in earlier versions of Java the alpha
bit was not set by default but now it is, or maybe this has been simply
overlooked.

I hope I have explained better now? I'm looking over the source code to see
where exactly OpenOffice is taking the integer value set in the
"CharBackColor" property and actually applying it to the text in the
document. That's probably where it's assuming an alpha bit of 0x00 but it
shouldn't be. If background transparency is not supported per design, then
OpenOffice not assume an empty alpha bit but should check for the alpha bit
value and simply clear it or set it to 0xFF (= full opacity).

Does anyone know if the Writer application uses some kind of canvas
interface for formatting and displaying text? I'm picking up on "canvas"
here and there but I'm not sure if it's only for the Drawing application,
or if all Applications use a form of canvas.
I'm guessing the problem with the Java values having the alpha bit and the
Uno/Basic values not having the alpha bit for Character Background Color
would need to be addressed somewhere around where the values are passed
between the two, or where the value is actually set to the Writer
interface. I'm still trying to get an idea of how the source code is

Thanks for the tip on OpenGrok! it rocks :D did a search in 887
milliseconds, not bad at all. I guess it has the source code already
indexed so it's a lot faster. That's a big help!

Re: help how to create a patch

2015-09-19 Thread John D'Orazio
Yes I tried setting the CharBackTransparent boolean also, it had no effect.
>From my latest "research" I believe that it's not the case that transparent
and opaque values are being exchange, it's simply that OpenOffice doesn't
support transparency for background colors and because of this seems to use
"0x00" for the alpha bit (which would normally mean transparent rather than
opaque!).
The problem is that the Java Color Object and any other kind of Color
handling such as with JColorChooser, always set the alpha bit. So I'm
having to explicitly unset the alpha bit / set it to 0x00 before trying to
set the background color.
I believe this is something that can / should be handled behind the scenes,
by the OpenOffice API. If it doesn't support transparency it should however
check for the alpha bit and set it to whatever it likes it to be. So anyone
trying to set transparency will simply get opaque, rather than get nothing.

help how to create a patch

2015-09-17 Thread John D'Orazio
I believe I have found what can be considered a bug, or at least not
intended behaviour, in the way the OpenOffice API takes values from Java
when setting certain text properties (in this case "CharBackColor") using
the XPropertySet interface. I have been discussing this on a forum thread (
https://forum.openoffice.org/en/forum/viewtopic.php?f=44=79294=364347)
and have opened an issue for it on the bugzilla tracker (
https://bz.apache.org/ooo/show_bug.cgi?id=126531).

I would be willing to look into it and work on a patch for this, if anyone
can point me in the right direction of where exactly to look in the Open
Office source code... I have been skimming over it in the svn repo (
https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/openoffice/trunk/), but for a newcomer
it's hard to know where to look (I'm guessing it might have to do with the
XPropertySet interface, or wherever the Text Properties supported by the
interface are defined). If anyone can point me in the right direction I can
try to look into it...

Re: Wrongful information on the Wikipedia

2015-09-15 Thread John D'Orazio
Well actually the case of the wikipedia article is different, because the
adjective that is used for the project whether "dormant" or "moribund" is
not in fact actually being referred to the Apache project  but to the
pre-Apache project. The Apache project is indicated as being a derivative
project, and has been given a separate page as such. The issue there is
that one or two users (who happen to also be moderators) are very set on
considering the Apache project a different project, and not the "successor"
of the Oracle project. So it's actually the Oracle project that is being
called dormant. I do believe that it is a bit confusing for any normal user
that goes to read wikipedia, a lot of simple users don't even realize the
history behind this (I myself didn't until just recently, as I've been
reading up on the evolution of the project). But it's fairly useless trying
to clear it up any, as there are a couple users who are very intent on
keeping everything as is, any changes will spark debate (as has already
happened). It's probably not worth it...

Re: Wrongful information on the Wikipedia

2015-09-14 Thread John D'Orazio
Interestingly mr. David Gerard IS a moderator on Wikipedia it seems. He
still has to abide by the rules though. And there is quite a bit of
discussion on the talk page, where some users have opted to split the
"Apache OpenOffice" project onto its own page as a completely separate
derivative project. All that is needed is to chime in on the article talk
page citing references to legal info about OpenOffice.org being officially
in the hands of the Apache Software Foundation. If there is evidence of
that (which seems obvious to me, I'm a newcomer but I go to the webpage and
I see Apache OpenOffice on the OpenOffice.org webpage), it just needs to be
cited on the talk page to back any kind of edits to the article that
reflect that. Seems that the article has already been split and "Apache
OpenOffice" has it's own wikipedia article (
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apache_OpenOffice), I wouldn't make a big
deal about having a separate article but I would oppose the POV opinions
about Apache not having legal rights to the OpenOffice.org project (hence
the corrections to the infobox information).
I don't know all of the technicalities, so the edits I just made might not
be precise, for example which release was the first release to have the
Apache license?

I'll try to change it too. If someone on wikipedia reverts an edit up to
three times without founded reason, they can be blocked by a wikipedia
moderator. So they won't be able to continue reverting forever...

 I changed it to "Active" just now and added a ref pointer to the 4.1.2
 release schedule that Andrea just provided.  I just hope there aren't
 certain parties with a vested interest in denigrating AOO sitting around
 planning to start a revert war over this.   :-(

Re: [EXTENSIONS] how is the extension constructor called

2014-10-09 Thread John D'Orazio
Just wondering what would be considered the fix for this, someone
mentioned implementing more logic in the Netbeans plugin. Would a plausible
solution be to have Netbeans generate each add-in as a singleton? Or is
there maybe a better fix from the open office end in the way it implements
the java plugins? I have a hunch this could be the case, because I don't
see why the add-in class should be invoked / instantiated as many times as
there are menu items and toolbar items. Seems like there should be a better
integration scheme...

 Does this mean it's a bug in the way open office is implementing the java
 add-ins generated by the NetBeans plugin? (I'm the one that opened the
 issue about this in the forum, seeing I'm trying to create a Writer add-in
 using the NetBeans plugin.)

  I was checking in to a new issue opened on the netbeans plugin. [1]
 
  For every menu item for the AddOn in the current context (ex Writer),
  the constructor is called then the Menu is first clicked.
  If there are 2 menu items the constructor is ran twice.
  This only happens on the first time per context opened.
 
  Is this expected behavior?
 
  Is the constructor called from office?
 
  If so it's not a bug in the plugin.

 I don't think it's a bug in the plugin
