      Description

      PDDocument doc = PDDocument.load(new File("GeneralForbearance.pdf"));
      Object value = doc.getDocumentCatalog().getStructureTreeRoot().getParentTree().getValue(0);
      

      The code above always fails when used on a PDF with a structure tree:

      Exception in thread "main" java.io.IOException: Error while trying to create value in number tree:org.apache.pdfbox.cos.COSBase.<init>(org.apache.pdfbox.cos.COSArray)

      	at org.apache.pdfbox.pdmodel.common.PDNumberTreeNode.getNumbers(PDNumberTreeNode.java:185)

      	... 3 more
      

      I suspect that it is related to the PDNumberTreeNode having been called with a COSBase class parameter in getParentTree().

      That one doesn't have a constructor with a parameter.

      The structure tree numbers tree has mixed contents, these can be arrays or dictionaries.

      What we need is some PD wrapper that can have both inside.
