Hi Darshan

people using eclipse?

Yes, if you think that is useful, then by all means, go ahead. Thanks!

If it is really fixed somehow, then I'd definitely start by adding a comment that describes
how you verified this. If the reporter challenges your assessment, he will reopen anyway,
so it does no harm to close it if you are convinced.

> Lastly the bug report https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=50196 was reopened
because there was no test case for the fix. I have reproduced the error by modifying one of
the existing layout test files. The xml file and the output pdfs are attached. However I could
not figure out how to write the checks. How can I know which xpath elements should have what
values? Could you please guide as to how I can write the checks?

You will want to take a look at the generated area tree XML in the build/test-results folder
(or wherever you have the output sent to). Locate the elements in the tree that play a part
in the issue, and figure out which attribute values to check.

Note: if you leave the <checks> element empty, you will still always get a default check
for a non-empty areaTree node. I added this once, to have a generic way to check for simple
things, like not throwing a NullPointerException, but I see it is not mentioned on the Wiki...

Hope this helps!
