Chris A. Mattmann commented on TIKA-29:


Could you be more specific as to exactly where (as in which Tika classes) this is happening?
It may be obvious (by browsing through all the code), however, it would be nice to avoid that
if you've already done the legwork. Please let know us specifically the places that you see
this happening.

>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-29
>             Project: Tika
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: general
>    Affects Versions: 0.1-incubator
>            Reporter: Keith R. Bennett
>            Priority: Critical
>             Fix For: 0.1-incubator
> There are many cases in several classes where exceptions are being swallowed where they
should be thrown instead.
> It is important that the caller be notified of an error if one occurs.  The caller needs
the opportunity to record the failure and set aside the document for future processing, or
whatever else needs to be done in case of error.
> I'm marking this critical because we have no way of knowing the importance of the missing
data; it could be of the utmost importance.
