TIKA-2705, I thought I could eliminate the use of the properties files for configuring PDF and OCR processing, and just use a tika-config.xml file.
I believe I have a unit test that demonstrates that if you need to override the tesseract path for OCR, you end up always with the default Tesseract configuration, which leads to Tika throwing an error: https://github.com/apache/tika/blob/master/tika-parsers/src/main/java/org/apache/tika/parser/pdf/AbstractPDF2XHTML.java#L328
In stepping through the code, it seems like every time we consult the context:
TesseractOCRConfig tesseractConfig =
We always get back the default. The context never has our customized TesseractOCRConfig! Despite the fact that when we load up the TikaConfig in the first case, I notice that we do create a TesseractOCRParser object WITH the various parameters...
