<p>
Tika is a toolkit for detecting and extracting metadata and
structured text content from various documents using existing
parser libraries. Tika entered incubation on March 22nd, 2007.
</p>
<p><strong>Community</strong></p>
<p>
There have been a number of positive items within Tika during the
last few months. The traffic on the Tika mailing list has increased
significantly (with typically 2, 3 questions, and 1 or 2 commits
every day, or every other day), and there have been a lot of recent
inquiries from external projects wanting to collaborate with Tika
(including Aperture, PDFBox and a fellow developing a JSon library
currently hosted at Google code). In addition, Tika's architecture
has become a recent discussion of interest (as we'll see below).
</p>
<p>
We recently elected Keith Bennett as a new committer to Tika.
Keith has been spearheading many of the new patches committed to
Tika, as well as participating in discussions about the
architecture, and future direction of the project.
</p>
<p>
Tika will be represented at the "Fast Feather" track at
ApacheCon US by Jukka Zitting. The rest of the community is helping
to create the content for the presentation. The abstract is listed
below:
</p>
<blockquote>
Tika is a new content analysis framework borne from the desire to
factor our commonality from the Apache Nutch search engine framework.
Tika provides a mime detection framework, an extensible parsing
framework and metadata environment for content analysis. Though in
its nascent stages, progress on Tika has recently taken shape and
the project is nearing a stable 0.1 release. In this talk, we'll
describe the core APIs of Tika and discuss its use in several
distinct domains including search engines, scientific data
dissemination and an industrial setting.
</blockquote>
<p><strong>Development</strong></p>
<p>
There have been a flurry of JIRA issues and code activity
(http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA) including 47 issues
currently in JIRA, with 32 resolved issues, 14 closed issues,
and 2 open major/minor issues in progress).
</p>
<p>
Tika's Parser interface (one of its key components) has just
undergone a major overhaul led by Jukka Zitting, and Chris
Mattmann has recently contributed a MimeType system (with help from
fellow Apache Nutch committer Jerome Charron) to Tika. We also
cleaned up and refactored large parts of the rest of the code
(removing references to LiusLite and branding the project wherever
possible with the Tika name), in preparation for an upcoming
0.1 release.
</p>
<p>
Chris Mattmann has led an effort to carve out the existing MimeType
detection system in Apache Nutch (http://lucene.apache.org/nutch/)
and replace it with Tika's improved MimeType detection system.
There is a patch sitting in JIRA right now
(http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/NUTCH-562), and barring
objections, Nutch will rely on Tika for its MimeType detection
abilities.
</p>
<p>
Also active recently were committers Bertrand Delacretaz, Sami
Siren and Rida Benjelloun, committing patches and improvements
wherever needed.
</p>
<p><strong>Issues before graduation</strong></p>
<p>
No changes since our last report: the Tika project is still at
an early stage of incubation. We need to continue bringing in the
initial codebases and are targeting an initial incubating release
(0.1) probably within the next month. We also need to work on
growing the community and figuring out how to best interact with
external parser projects.

The Tika mailing list has seen increased activity in the last

Grant Ingersoll brought the Aperture framework to our attention

<p><strong>Community</strong></p>
<p>
The Tika mailing lists have been relatively quiet lately, probably
because with little code we don't yet have many concrete issues
to talk about.
</p>
<p><strong>Development</strong></p>
<p>
We saw the first piece of Tika code when Chris A. Mattmann ported
the Nutch metadata framework to Tika. Rida Benjelloun has created
a version of the Lius codebase to be included in Tika, and the
code is currently in the issue tracker.

</p>
<p><strong>Community</strong></p>
<p>
We had a good project bootstrap meeting as a part of the text
analysis BOF at the ApacheCon EU in Amsterdam. The resulting ideas
were summarized on the project mailing list, and the first design
threads have started.
</p>
<p><strong>Development</strong></p>
<p>
We've started discussing the design of the Tika toolkit. It seems
like we will select one of the existing codebases listed in the
project proposal as the basis of an early 0.1 release, and start
refactoring the code into a more generic toolkit. The Tika svn
tree is still empty, but I expect us to see the first code commits
before the next report.
</p>
<p><strong>Infrastructure</strong></p>
<p>
All the initial infrastructure is now in place. There is still
some activity on the temporary Tika wiki on the Google Project
hosting service, so we may end up requesting a Tika wiki to be
set up on the ASF infrastructure.
</p>
<p><strong>Issues before graduation</strong></p>
<p>
The Tika project is still at an early stage of incubation. The
most important tasks before graduation are to develop and release
the Tika codebase and to grow a diverse and sustainable project
community.
