Does anyone have insight on the following bug ( "Writer input fields are
not populated using the Java UNO API" )?


I can't process any documents with LO 3.4.3 or greater.  Here is the

I've been using OpenOffice and LibreOffice to batch process documents using the
Java UNO interface.  Upon updating to LibreOffice 3.4.3, LibreOffice is
ignoring the Java UNO calls to populate the input fields with data.  Running
the same code with LibreOffice 3.3 works flawlessly.  Below is sample code,
which I've stepped through in debug mode, and everything is running correctly.
The fields are found, but calling xPropertySet.setPropertyValue("Content",
newValue) leaves the document unchanged. Updating table cells with 3.4.3,
however, is working as expected.  Has something changed with the API that is
not documented?
