Subject [jira] Commented: (TIKA-378) TikaConfig should notify users if it cannot initialize some parser
Date Wed, 17 Feb 2010 08:12:27 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-378?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12834681#action_12834681

Sami Siren commented on TIKA-378:
---------------------------------

Basically my situation is such that I am extending tika with external parsers. When deploying,
initialization of parsers may fail for many reasons, for example you might have problems with
loading native libraries, class not found etc. Currently you are totally in the dark what
it comes to quessing what is the problem, you only see that your parser is not there. I am
basically seeking a way to tell the user (via logging or something else) that there was problems
initializing the parsers you have configured and here's the cause of the problems (eg an exception).

> It would be nice if TikaConfig would somehow signal that it cannot load parser classes.
Currently it just silently ignores all throwables.
> I would be ok with about any kind of signaling (even just wrapping and rethrowing the
exception). If we wan't to maintain back compat in functionality we could indroduce a new
config option into the configuration file or a method in TikaConfig class that would enable
rethrowing exceptions on parser initializations.
> What do others think?
