Exactly. PDFBox is having problems extracting text from some of your
documents. In such cases Jackrabbit simply logs the problem as a
warning (so you know about it) and indexes the document as if it were

In general these warnings aren't too harmful, but it would be good if
you could post the full stack trace to the PDFBox issue tracker at
https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PDFBOX, preferably with an
example PDF that causes the problem. That way the PDFBox team will
have a chance to fix the problem and sooner or later also Jackrabbit
will be able to better index your documents.
