Subject Re: [jira] Resolved: (UIMA-1878) TikaAnnotator doesn't handle spaces in path string
Date Tue, 21 Sep 2010 19:17:31 GMT
 I noticed that the patch changes a public API (populateCASfromURL).  This will
break backwards compatibility, if anyone has code that is depending on that API.

If there is a convenient way to implement the fix without changing the APIs, I
think our users may prefer that :-) .
