Subject Re: Regarding pdf indexing issue
Date Wed, 11 Jul 2018 15:07:57 GMT
Solr will not do this automatically, the Extracting Request Handler
simply indexes the entire contents of the doc without regard to things
like paragraphs etc. Ditto with HTML. This is actually a task that
requires getting into Tika and using all the bells and whistles there.

I'd recommend two things:

1> Take the PDF parsing offline, i.e. in a separate client. There are
many reasons for this, in particular you can attempt to do what you're
asking. See:

2> Talk to the Tika folks about the best ways to make Tika return the
information such that you can index them and get what you'd like.
