Foxit WebPDF Viewer – Discontinued

Why Eclipse reports “The method getTextContent() is undefined” always in org.w3c.dom.Node class when running webpdf-extension-sample project?

The project uses dom4j->xml-apis, it calls node class from dom4j but not from JDK. So it reports node class error. To solve the problem, right click properties of the project, select builder path, and then move the JDK up to maven dependencies, it will call the node class from JDK. The error will disappear.
