Subject [jira] Commented: (TIKA-509) Container contents extraction
Date Wed, 08 Sep 2010 17:11:32 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-509?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12907318#action_12907318

Nick Burch commented on TIKA-509:

Initial work committed in r995157.

This commit shows a rough cut of the interfaces and key classes, so everyone can review them
now there's some concrete code to look at. One change required though is to not pass an open
inputstream in for every firing of the handler. Instead, the handler should be given a chance
to decline the embeded resource first, before the extractor potentially does lots of work
to generate/unpack the resource

Also in the commit is a basic POIFS extractor. It only does nested embeded office files, no
images, and only for word+excel. However, it should give an idea of how things may work

The config for the auto-detector isn't wired in yet, that'll be done once we have further

>    Affects Versions: 0.7

> This service will operate in a push mode, using streaming where possible (not all container
formats will support that). Users can control recursion, and will be given the chance to process
each embeded file in turn. It's up to them if they process a file or skip it.
> It will work similar to the current Parser code, with each container having its own extractor
in the parsers package, and the interface defined in the core package. There will be an Auto
extractor in the core package, configured with a list of parser extractors just like AutoDetectParser
