Subject [jira] Commented: (TIKA-593) Tika network server
Date Thu, 10 Feb 2011 02:33:57 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-593?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12992837#comment-12992837

Otis Gospodnetic commented on TIKA-593:
---------------------------------------

Out of curiosity, why not just have a simple webapp (war) that uses Tika that reads the InputStream
and spits back the data in whatever format is needed/specified?  Sure, it requires a servlet
container, but is that really a big deal?  Just asking because it seems a tiny bit simpler
than using Netty or Mina or HttpComponents or embedded Jetty or Grizzly.

> It would be cool to be able to run Tika as a network service that accepts a binary document
as input and produces the extracted content (as XHTML, text, or just metadata) as output.
A bit like TIKA-169, but without the dependency to a servlet container.
> I'd like to be able to set up and run such a server like this:
>     $ java -jar tika-app.jar --port 1234
> We should also add a NetworkParser class that acts as a local client for such a service.
This way a lightweight client could use the full set of Tika parsing functionality even with
just the tika-core jar within its classpath.
