Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-1910) Tika 2.0 - Decouple Tika Parser Office Module from Other Dependencies
Date Tue, 05 Apr 2016 01:26:25 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-1910?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15225474#comment-15225474

Bob Paulin commented on TIKA-1910:

Thinking of a way to pass the ServiceLoader...

Allow Detectors, Parsers, and EncodingDetectors to leverage ServiceLoader in Constructor:
Move object instantiation into the ServiceLoader class (replaces all instances of klass.newInstance()
in ServiceLoader and TikaConfig
public <T> T createServiceInstance(Class<?> klass)
            throws InstantiationException, IllegalAccessException, InvocationTargetException
        T serviceInstance = null;
            serviceInstance = 
        }catch(NoSuchMethodException e) {}
        if(serviceInstance == null)
            serviceInstance = (T) klass.newInstance();
        return serviceInstance;

Then newInstance becomes
loaded = loader.createServiceInstance(loadedClass);

And service classes can have ServiceLoader Constructors:

     public ChmParser(ServiceLoader serviceLoader) {
        this.htmlProxy = serviceLoader.getProxyService("org.apache.tika.parser.html.HtmlParser",
Parser.class, ChmParser.class.getClassLoader());

Thoughts on this approach?   Or is the no arg constructor sacred?

> Currently the Tika Parser Office Module depends on 
> Tika Parser Web Module
> Tika Parser Package Module
> Tika Parser Text Module
> Using the proxies we can make those dependencies optional so if they are not included
on the classpath the code functions but performs no operation on content that would be parsed
on the optional dependencies.
