Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-766) Trim down the NetCDF dependency
Date Mon, 02 Mar 2015 01:41:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-766?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14342602#comment-14342602

Tyler Palsulich commented on TIKA-766:

Do we need to look into this more? Now with GRIB support and the new ucar dependencies, we
are using more of the functionality.

But, does anyone know if there are still licensing issues?

The size of tika-app is getting unwieldy, so issues like this are worth investigating.

>                 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.
