> Nutch does not use backup parsers
> ---------------------------------
>                 Key: NUTCH-1993
>                 URL:
>             Project: Nutch
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: parser
>            Reporter: Arkadi Kosmynin
> From reading the code it is clear that it is designed to allow using several parsers
to parse a document in a sequence, until it is successfully parsed. In practice, this does
not work because these lines 
> if (parseResult != null && !parseResult.isEmpty())
>         return parseResult;
> break the loop even if the parsing has failed because parseResult is not empty anyway,
it contains a ParseData with ParseStatus.FAILED.
> A fix:
> if ( parseResult.isAnySuccess() ) 
>         return parseResult;
> Where parseResult.isAnySuccess() returns true if any of the parsing attempts were successful.
> This fix is important because it allows use of backup parsers as originally designed
and thus increase index completeness.
