Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-1824) Tika 2.0 - Create Initial Parser Modules
Date Thu, 04 Feb 2016 03:19:39 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-1824?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15131650#comment-15131650

Bob Paulin commented on TIKA-1824:

So before we go that way let me explain what about your previous suggestion made me change
my mind.  Consider the developer looking at this in a lib directory or an IDE.  If they just
see advanced-parser or cad-parser I feel we're opening the door for confusion as there are
many other libraries that do parsing.  Thought it's redundant to the maintainers to have tika-parser-*
as a prefix it could ease the life of the end user developer trying to sort out JAR hell on
there classpath.  

Second I have the module suffix because I'm still mulling how to replace tika-bundle.  Currently
there are still many tika dependencies that are not OSGi friendly.  We've been getting around
this by embedding them in tika-bundle.  The module suffix jars do not have dependencies embedded
so I was considering creating projects with a bundle suffix that would embed the dependencies
individually as tika-bundle did.  I'm curious what the rest of the community thinks of this
approach. Naturally if we figure out a way to eliminate the need for 2 then I agree the module
suffix is redundant and can be removed.  My 2 cents.  Thanks so much for the feedback, these
are great things to be discussing.
