Subject [jira] [Commented] (ANY23-83) Remove hardcoded formats throughout Any23 to make it useful as a library
Date Sun, 13 May 2012 23:43:49 GMT


Peter Ansell commented on ANY23-83:

"- I've improved the NaiveMIMETypeDetector logic as suggested by the submitted patch. See
r1337905. "

I think there is also the possibility of an equivalent patch for the TikaMIMETypeDetector
as a backup for cases where Tika doesn't reveal a MIME-type but Rio might provide it. See

> Many classes inside of Any23 seem to hardcode restrictions on the supported formats,
making it difficult to utilise Any23 as an extensible library. 
> One example of this are RDFSchemaUtils that artificially restricts itself to three formats
using an enum mapping, where it could easily accept any RDFHandler, even if it were not an
> Another example is RDFUtils where the list of RDFParser's is hardcoded in, and enforced
using an enum.
> What was the reasoning for creating artificial format classes and manually mapping them
to writers/parsers instead of using either allowing any RDFHandler in the first case, or allowing
any accessible RDFParser in the second case, using Rio.getParser() to avoid hardcoding anything.
