Subject content extraction for pdf links
Date Thu, 20 Jan 2011 12:33:29 GMT
Hello list,

I have been using Nutch 1.2 to crawl the web for a small number of very relevant html pages
and associated URL's containing PDF document's. I have then been using Luke v 1.0.1 to look
inside my index to guarantee I have indexed specific PDF documents which reside on these web
pages. When I search my index via my web application interface I am returned a hyperlink (amongst
other information) for a relevant hit. It is my intention to implement a content extraction
mechanism to also provide relevant information contained within the pdf documents which reside
in my index whenever a user submits a query. E.g. if someone were to submit a query relating
to a clause within a legal document, the content extraction tool would parse the pdf file
and provide a snippet of the relevant data from within the PDF document in the search result.

I hope I have explained my problem properly, I am posting here as I have been aware for some
time that Tika was possibly the solution but I am only just getting round to working on this

Thank you
