Subject [jira] Created: (TIKA-31) protected Parser.parse(InputStream stream, Iterable<Content> contents)

protected Parser.parse(InputStream stream, Iterable<Content> contents)
----------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: TIKA-31
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-31
             Project: Tika
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: general
            Reporter: Jukka Zitting
            Assignee: Jukka Zitting


In order to push towards a stateless Parser interface, I'd like to propose implementing the
current Parser.getContents() method (as it exists after TIKA-26) in terms of a stateless abstract
method with the following signature:

    protected abstract String parse(InputStream stream, Iterable<Content> contents)
throws IOException, TikaException;

This method would return the fulltext content of the given stream as the String return value
and place any extra metadata into the given set of Content instances. With this information
the current Parser.getContents() method could populate a fulltext (and summary) Content entry
and any regexp Content entries universally for any Parser classes. Also, we could centralize
state handling and exception processing to a single class.
