Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-849) Identify and parse the Apple iBooks format
Date Tue, 24 Jan 2012 11:54:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-849?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13192078#comment-13192078

Andrew Jackson commented on TIKA-849:

By the way, I notice you added a
    <sub-class-of type="application/epub+zip" />
to the iBooks identification information. I'm not sure this is correct, as I was under the
impression that this was a strict conformance hierarchy. This would imply that every x-ibooks+zip
also conforms to the epub+zip format, but this is not the case, because the new MIME type
declaration means it violated the ePub standard.

>             Project: Tika
>          Issue Type: New Feature
>          Components: mime, parser
>    Affects Versions: 1.1
>            Reporter: Andrew Jackson
>         Attachments: ibooks-support.patch
> With the release of iBooks Author 1.0, Apple have created a new eBook format very similar
to ePub. Tika could be extended to identify and parse this new format, re-using the existing
ePub code wherever possible.
> I have created an initial patch, which I will attach to this issue.
