Description

One of questions by Tom Ip on the mailing list was whether there was support in GS for Apache Tika's comprehensive document format conversion tool.

It turns out that Sam had written an extension for Tika, including a document conversion plugin (pm file), see http://trac.greenstone.org/changeset/22690

1. Try to download his jar http://trac.greenstone.org/browser/gs2-extensions/tika/trunk/tika-java.tar.gz

and see if the existing version works

2. Try to get it working otherwise.

3. Maybe upgrade to the latest version of Tika and ensure it still works.

4. Write up a tutorial or else at least a wiki page on how to use this extension with GLI.
