I'd rather wait a week for a beta, but I need to test this on our code sooner than that. I'm getting pressure to just get only the patch for this one bug and apply it to our production code.
I did get the jars built, but I'm not sure where in the Tika project structure the POI jars get imported from. Tika uses maven to build, which I'm not familiar with how to configure. I'm also not familiar with the Tika project structure, is there a place I can drop the POI jar file and maven will recognize it, or is there an environment variable or PATH I should set somewhere?
I've noticed in the tika-parsers/pom.xml that it mentions POI, but just as a comment and version numbers for a few properties. I also see the POI jars mentioned in target/classes/META-INF/DEPENDENCIES, but those are also just version numbers.
I see the POIContainerExtractionTest and ooxml packages in org/apache/tika/parser/microsoft, but those are just the tests.
Where does the POI jar go, and what needs to be configured before running mvn to build Tika?
My guess is that my ignorance on how maven works is why I'm not sure what to do, but based on using ant, I'm used to putting something in the right spot and possibly changing a build.xml property to make sure it is looking at the correct spot. What am I missing?
