Arturo Beltran commented on TIKA-443:
-------------------------------------

You are right Chris. Since now, I will try to keep the discussions on the list or here.

I will try to explain in brief where exactly I'm working in order that you can get involved.
The first piece is what allows us to access resources, we need a platform to access by the
most homogenous way to heterogeneous resources. The best approach I've found has been FDO
(http://fdo.osgeo.org/). In short, FDO is an API for manipulating, defining and analyzing
geospatial information regardless of where it is stored.

So it looks simple, I only have to integrate FDO as a Tika parser and I have it. The problem
appeared when trying to connect this C++ API with Java. I have worked with SWIG and directly
with JNI but I have not gotten it to work.
Finally, temporary and to serve as a proof of concept, I implemented a simple HTTP server
in .NET that offers resource descriptions using FDO. And now I'm trying to create a dummy
parser for Tika to make calls to that server.

I hope I explained well and that you could understand something, otherwise, feel free to ask
again.

Greetings and thanks for your interest:
     Arturo

> I'm working in the automatic description of geospatial resources, and I think that might
be interesting to incorporate new parser/s to Tika in order to manage and describe some geo-formats.
These geo-formats include files, services and databases.
> If anyone is interested in this issue or want to collaborate do not hesitate to contact
me. Any help is welcome.
