> ----------------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: TIKA-307
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/TIKA-307
>             Project: Tika
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: parser
>    Affects Versions: 0.4
>            Reporter: Kenneth William Krugler
>            Priority: Major
> Some parsers (e.g. ZipParser) can hang if they prematurely reach the end of the input stream.
> As a way of avoiding this issue, Jukka had suggested the following approach on the list:
> The input stream could be wrapped into a decorator that throws a tagged IOException when the given size limit has been reached. This assumes that all parsers will correctly propagate up an IOException (at the very least).
> Smarter parsers could cleanly close the emitted XHTML stream, potentially adding a metadata entry that signifies that the extracted text has been truncated.
