Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-766) Trim down the NetCDF dependency
Date Fri, 22 Jun 2012 23:01:43 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-766?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=13399697#comment-13399697

john caron commented on TIKA-766:

Ive attempted to get any LGPL code out of netcdf-java version 4.3.11, which will be released
next week. 

Weve also done more work on mavenizing it, hopefully that will work for you.

In terms of size, I can cut it down some, but not much (maybe down to 3 M?). If you only want
netcdf-3, that could be very small. But if you want all those other file formats, that gets
pretty big. Both GRIB and BUFR are now in optional jars.

>                 Key: TIKA-766
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-766
>             Project: Tika
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: packaging, parser
>            Reporter: Jukka Zitting
>            Priority: Minor
> As noted in TIKA-763, the NetCDF dependency contains a few LGPL classes that we should
get rid of, ideally without the workaround added for TIKA-763.
> Additionally, with 4.2MB the NetCDF jar is pretty large and includes lots of stuff that
isn't really related to parsing NetCDF and HDF files.
> It would be nice if the NetCDF project could produce a separately packaged read-only
parser library that only contains the stuff needed by Tika.
