Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-1948) Catch exceptions per page in PDFParser
Date Mon, 11 Apr 2016 19:47:25 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-1948?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=15235825#comment-15235825

Tim Allison commented on TIKA-1948:
-----------------------------------

I ran this proposed change against ~325k pdfs.  There were very modest gains, with no downsides.
 We extracted more content (and it looked like good content, not mojibake) for 40 files. 
Any objections to adding this?

> In a discussion with [~tilman] somewhere(???), I think he observed that we weren't doing
a try/catch for each page.  If there's an exception in an early page, it might still be possible
to extract text from later pages in a problematic PDF.
> With very minimal modifications we could add a try/catch per page, store the caught exceptions,
and then throw the first caught exception after the parse finishes.
