Creating a Table of Contents for a XWPFDocument with page numbers’ indication

The XWPF classes as you have seen are a work in progress, with no real overarching architecture. That will change over time as we work on it, but in the mean time you can try to add a simple TOC field to a paragraph in this way.

XWPFParagraph p;
// get or create your paragraph
CTP ctP = p.getCTP();
CTSimpleField toc = ctP.addNewFldSimple();
toc.setInstr("TOC \\h");

This will create a Table of contents with hyperlinks to the pages, it should be recalculated when Word opens it, and the table of contents will be based on predefined HeaderX styles.
