Class FileCommandDetector

  • All Implemented Interfaces:
    Serializable, Detector

    public class FileCommandDetector
    extends Object
    implements Detector
    This runs the linux 'file' command against a file. If this is called on a TikaInputStream, it will use the underlying Path or spool the full file to disk and then run file against that.

    If this is run against any other type of InputStream, it will spool up to maxBytes to disk and then run the detector.

    As with all detectors, mark must be supported.

    If you want to use file's mime type in the parse, e.g. to select the parser in AutoDetectParser, set setUseMime(boolean) to true. The default behavior is to store the value as FILE_MIME but rely on other detectors for the "active" mime used by Tika.

        Description copied from interface: Detector
        Detects the content type of the given input document. Returns application/octet-stream if the type of the document can not be detected.

        If the document input stream is not available, then the first argument may be null. Otherwise the detector may read bytes from the start of the stream to help in type detection. The given stream is guaranteed to support the mark feature and the detector is expected to mark the stream before reading any bytes from it, and to reset the stream before returning. The stream must not be closed by the detector.

        The given input metadata is only read, not modified, by the detector.

        Specified by:
        detect in interface Detector
        input - document input stream, or null
        metadata - input metadata for the document
        mime as identified by the file command or application/octet-stream otherwise
