Subject [jira] [Commented] (TIKA-1675) please avoid xmlbeans dependency
Date Tue, 07 Jul 2015 22:50:04 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-1675?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14617578#comment-14617578

Uwe Schindler commented on TIKA-1675:

There was already an issue/discussion open on POI mailing lists and issue tracker to no longer
use xmlbeans & Co, because since Java 6 the JAXB interface is a public API that allows
to map XML documents to Java Beans - which is exactly the same as xmlbeans is dooing. Unfortunately
this is a larger approach to change the API to do use the standards Java API (and might also
bring more performance). This would remove a lot of unneeded XML-based stuff from POI for
Microsoft Office 2007+ file formats.

-1 to absorb the buggy xmlbeans (this lib was also the problem of the major Solr/Lucene security
issue last year)
+1 to adopt JAXB instead of xmlbeans
