      Description

      If you start tika-server and specify a custom parser class in tika-config but you don't then include that jar on the classpath, tika-server silently fails.

      I initially thought that we should make sure that it respects the service loader problem handler (e.g. <service-loader initializableProblemHandler="throw"/>), but this isn't service loading. If a user specifies a parser that can't be loaded, we should throw an exception. WDYT?

      This also affects tika-app in regular and batch mode.
