Apache Tika conversion filter used for attachment searches

The Domino® server and Notes® standard client use Apache Tika 1.18 open source conversion filters to extract text for full-text searches of attachments. Tika replaces the KeyView conversion filter used in previous releases.

The implementation of Tika supports the ability to:
  • Search a wide range of formats, including container files such as .zip and .tar files.
  • Search ASCII text files that contain UTF-8 encoding.
  • Customize which attachment types can be full-text indexed and the maximum attachment size allowed for full-text indexing.
