[Feature request] Why is Document a final class?


#1

I know really little about jni, so here is my question: Is it possible to make Document not final in Java? Or create an interface with all the methods and that Document implements it?

The idea was that we didn’t want users to subclass Document, because that is not a supported approach to using couchbase lite.

However, since this is a blocker for you, I went ahead and removed “final” on the master branch:
