Subject [jira] [Created] (TIKA-845) Check for Existing Value in Multi-Value Fields in XML Metadata Handler

Check for Existing Value in Multi-Value Fields in XML Metadata Handler
----------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: TIKA-845
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-845
             Project: Tika
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: parser
    Affects Versions: 1.0
            Reporter: Ray Gauss II
             Fix For: 1.1


The XML Abstract metdata handler should check for an existing value for multi-valued fields
as well as simple text fields.

Similar metadata may be stored in multiple fields in the source and a developer may choose
to map several source fields to the same tika field, in which case no check is made for duplicates
of existing delimited values.

For example, a developer may want to dump any values contained in legacy IPTC keywords and
dc:subject into tika keywords.  If IPTC keywords = ['rock','tree','dog'] and dc:subject =
['rock','tree','K9'] then currently tika keywords = ['rock','tree','dog','rock','tree','K9']
instead of the desired ['rock','tree','dog','K9'].
