Subject [jira] Commented: (JCR-728) Automatic MIME type detection
Date Fri, 02 Feb 2007 09:18:05 GMT

Jukka Zitting commented on JCR-728:
-----------------------------------

> Why LGPL is troublesome?

The LGPL works as intended for C code, but is  troublesome for languages like Java. See http://wiki.apache.org/jakarta/Using_LGPL'd_code
and the current draft of the third party license policy at 
http://www.apache.org/legal/3party.html for more details.

It could be possible for us to introduce a limited LGPL dependency if there's no reasonable
alternative (see the conditions on the Jakarta wiki), but I don't think jmimemagic is essential
enough to justify such trouble. This is also the reason why we can't release the Hibernate
persistence manager we currently have in the contrib directory.

> I know this is a POI issue, but is this project abandoned?

I've seen some activity there, but I don't know the exact status of the project. The latest
Jakarta board report mentioned some conflict over the status of POI, but I hope that's been
cleared. It would be nice if we didn't have to start looking for an alternative.

> Currently only the jcr:mimeType property is used to determine the MIME type and thus
the applicable text extractor to use for indexing a document. If the jcr:mimeType property
is not available or is set to a generic value like "application/octet-stream", then the indexer
could also use some heuristics based on the node name or magic numbers within the binary stream
to determine the type of the document.
