Subject Re: Extracting contents of zipped files with Tika and Solr 1.4.1 (now Solr 3.1)
Date Fri, 20 May 2011 15:15:07 GMT
Hello again.  Unfortunately, I'm still getting nowhere with this.  I 
have checked-out the 3.1 source and applied Jayendra's patches (see 
below) and it still appears that the contents of the files in the 
zipfile are not being indexed, only the filenames of those contained files.

I'm using a simple CURL invocation to test this:


-F "commit=true" -F "" contains two simple txt files (doc1.txt and doc2.txt).  I'm 
expecting the contents of those txt files to be extracted from the zip 
and indexed, but this isn't happening - or at least, I don't get the 
desired result when I do a query afterwards.  I do get a match if I 
search for either "doc1.txt" or "doc2.txt", but not if I search for a 
word that appears in their contents.

If I index one of the txt files (instead of the zipfile), I can query 
the content OK, so I'm assuming my query is sensible and matches the 
field specified on the CURL string (ie. "text").  I'm also happy that 
the Solr Cell content extraction is working because I can successfully 
index PDF, Word, etc. files.

In a fit of desperation I have added statements into the files 
referenced by Jayendra's patches (SOLR-2416 and SOLR-2332) and I see 
those in the log when I submit the zipfile with CURL, so I know I'm 
running those patched files in the build.

If anyone can shed any light on what's happening here, I'd be very grateful.

Thanks and kind regards,
