Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-849) Identify and parse the Apple iBooks format
Date Tue, 24 Jan 2012 11:30:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-849?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13192074#comment-13192074

Andrew Jackson commented on TIKA-849:
-------------------------------------

I'm not that familiar with the content handling infrastructure of Tika at present, so I'm
having trouble working out how to do this. I can see the ePubParser delegating the content
handling to the ePubContentParser which uses an XHTMLContentHandler, but I don't really understand
that code well enough to see why it discards the <object> elements and lets the others
through. Or perhaps that filtering is done at a later stage?

In any case, I suppose we would need a new iBooksParser and a new iBooksContentParser, based
on the ePub code, but using a different ContentHandler?

> 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.
