Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-2480) Text extraction of password protected files
Date Thu, 12 May 2011 04:17:47 GMT


Koji Sekiguchi commented on SOLR-2480:

bq. BTW, I have a similar issue when using UIMA update processor, as sometimes UIMA annotators
fail to extract meta data for some reason (eg Alchemy Web services stop). I'll open a separate
ticket for it.

Opened SOLR-2512.

>                 Key: SOLR-2480
>                 URL:
>             Project: Solr
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: contrib - Solr Cell (Tika extraction)
>    Affects Versions: 3.1
>            Reporter: Shinichiro Abe
>            Priority: Minor
>         Attachments: SOLR-2480-idea1.patch
> Proposal:
> There are password-protected files. PDF, Office documents in 2007 format/97 format.
> These files are posted using SolrCell.
> We do not have to read these files if we do not know the reading password of files.
> So, these files may not be extracted text.
> My requirement is that these files should be processed normally without extracting text,
and without throwing exception.
> This background:
> Now, when you post a password-protected file, solr returns 500 server error.
> Solr catches the error in ExtractingDocumentLoader and throws TikException.
> I use ManifoldCF.
> If the solr server responds 500, ManifoldCF judge is that "this
> document should be retried because I have absolutely no idea what
> happened".
> And it attempts to retry posting many times without getting the password.
> In the other case, my customer posts the files with embedded images.
> Sometimes it seems that solr throws TikaException of unknown cause.
> He wants to post just metadata without extracting text, but makes him stop posting by
the exception.
