Subject [jira] [Created] (TIKA-1233) PDFBox can throw StringIndexOutOfBoundsException on some dates
Date Wed, 05 Feb 2014 17:08:09 GMT
Tim Allison created TIKA-1233:
---------------------------------

             Summary: PDFBox can throw StringIndexOutOfBoundsException on some dates
                 Key: TIKA-1233
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-1233
             Project: Tika
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: parser
    Affects Versions: 1.5
            Reporter: Tim Allison
            Priority: Trivial
             Fix For: 1.6


PDFBOX's date parser can throw a StringIndexOutOfBoundsException if a date string for parsing
is empty or contains only spaces.  A few of my test pdfs have this "feature."

I've raised PDFBOX-1883.  Until that is resolved, we can add an extra catch to prevent this
from causing problems in TIKA

I'd commit now, but I don't want to interfere with cutting of 1.5.  Let me know if I should
commit, or please do it for me if appropriate.
