Subject [jira] Commented: (TIKA-482) Refactor image and jpeg parsers for access to MetadataExtractor API
Date Mon, 06 Sep 2010 11:31:33 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-482?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12906483#action_12906483

Nick Burch commented on TIKA-482:
---------------------------------

I couldn't include ImageMetadataExtractorTest as it uses new features of the extractor that
weren't in the patch...

Looking at your latest git patch:
* I think we do need all the random metadata as-is, since that is all there has been for a
while, and anyone currently using tika will be using those
* Could ExifOldStyleHandler and ExifHandler be merged? I guess ExifOldStyleHandler would want
to be switched from tag iterator to directory.containsTag though?
* For the keywords, would it not be better to use the tika metadata multiple-value support,
rather than underscore stuff?
* What else is needed do you think before we could apply this?

On the date thing, maybe the right thing to do is:
* EXIF original date -> Metadata.DATE, Metadata.CREATION_DATE
* EXIF date -> Metadata.LAST_MODIFIED
Would that make more sense to you?

> When I added support for more image metadata in TIKA-472, i realized
> the current design had some restrictions:
>  * I could not access the typed getters from Metadata Extractor, such
> as getDate (to format iso date) and getStringArray (for keywords).
>  * The handler function was called one field at a time which prevents
> logic where one field depends on the value of another (there is for
> example record versions and fields that specify encoding)
> See attached patch. It refactors TiffExtractor to MetadataExtractorExtractor.
> The patch also includes the date fix, see https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-451#action_12898794
> We can later add more Extractors using other libraries, and map to parsers based on format.
For example we already use ImageIO in ImageParser so maybe there should be an ImageIOExtractor.
