Class PDFParser

All Implemented Interfaces:
Serializable, Initializable, Parser, RenderingParser

public class PDFParser extends AbstractParser implements RenderingParser, Initializable
PDF parser.

This parser can process also encrypted PDF documents if the required password is given as a part of the input metadata associated with a document. If no password is given, then this parser will try decrypting the document using the empty password that's often used with PDFs. If the PDF contains any embedded documents (for example as part of a PDF package) then this parser will use the EmbeddedDocumentExtractor to handle them.

As of Tika 1.6, it is possible to extract inline images with the EmbeddedDocumentExtractor as if they were regular attachments. By default, this feature is turned off because of the potentially enormous number and size of inline images. To turn this feature on, see PDFParserConfig.setExtractInlineImages(boolean).

Please note that many pdfs do not store table structures. So you should not expect table markup for what looks like a table. It takes significant computation to identify and then correctly extract tables from PDFs. As of this writing, the PDFParser extracts text within tables, but it does not compute table cell boundaries or table row boundaries. Please see tabula for one project that tries to maintain the structure of tables represented in PDFs. If your PDFs contain marked content or tags, consider PDFParserConfig.setExtractMarkedContent(boolean)

    • getSupportedTypes

      public Set<MediaType> getSupportedTypes(ParseContext context)
      Description copied from interface: Parser
      Returns the set of media types supported by this parser when used with the given parse context.
      Specified by:
      getSupportedTypes in interface Parser
      context - parse context
      immutable set of media types
    • parse

      public void parse(InputStream stream, ContentHandler handler, Metadata metadata, ParseContext context) throws IOException, SAXException, TikaException
      Description copied from interface: Parser
      Parses a document stream into a sequence of XHTML SAX events. Fills in related document metadata in the given metadata object.

      The given document stream is consumed but not closed by this method. The responsibility to close the stream remains on the caller.

      Information about the parsing context can be passed in the context parameter. See the parser implementations for the kinds of context information they expect.

      Specified by:
      parse in interface Parser
      stream - the document stream (input)
      handler - handler for the XHTML SAX events (output)
      metadata - document metadata (input and output)
      context - parse context
      IOException - if the document stream could not be read
      SAXException - if the SAX events could not be processed
      TikaException - if the document could not be parsed

    • isEnableAutoSpace

      public boolean isEnableAutoSpace()
      See Also:
    • setEnableAutoSpace

      @Field public void setEnableAutoSpace(boolean v)
      If true (the default), the parser should estimate where spaces should be inserted between words. For many PDFs this is necessary as they do not include explicit whitespace characters.
    • isExtractAnnotationText

      public boolean isExtractAnnotationText()
      If true, text in annotations will be extracted.
    • setExtractAnnotationText

      @Field public void setExtractAnnotationText(boolean v)
      If true (the default), text in annotations will be extracted.
    • isSuppressDuplicateOverlappingText

      public boolean isSuppressDuplicateOverlappingText()
      See Also:
    • setSuppressDuplicateOverlappingText

      @Field public void setSuppressDuplicateOverlappingText(boolean v)
      If true, the parser should try to remove duplicated text over the same region. This is needed for some PDFs that achieve bolding by re-writing the same text in the same area. Note that this can slow down extraction substantially (PDFBOX-956) and sometimes remove characters that were not in fact duplicated (PDFBOX-1155). By default this is disabled.
    • isSortByPosition

      public boolean isSortByPosition()
      See Also:
    • setSortByPosition

      @Field public void setSortByPosition(boolean v)
      If true, sort text tokens by their x/y position before extracting text. This may be necessary for some PDFs (if the text tokens are not rendered "in order"), while for other PDFs it can produce the wrong result (for example if there are 2 columns, the text will be interleaved). Default is false.

      @Field public void setThrowOnEncryptedPayload(boolean throwOnEncryptedPayload)
      If the file is a 'Collection' and contains an embedded file with a defined 'AssociatedFile' value of 'EncryptedPayload', then throw an EncryptedDocumentException.

      Microsoft IRM v2 wraps the encrypted document inside a container PDF. See TIKA-4082.

      The goal of this is to make the user experience the same for traditionally encrypted files and PDFs that are containers for `EncryptedPayload`s.

      The default value is false.
