WazFormat is a format identification software that works with
It allows users to tell which type is the content of the
stream without consuming it.
It integrates a native format identification engine with
(a format identification library sponsored by the UK
and in future will integrate mime-utils and apache tika.
You can use this library for :
- Identifies more than 60 file formats.
- Can do nested detection: it can detect what is inside a bzip2 stream
or a PKCS#7 document.
- Result of identification is an Enum. Most of identification
libraries return a string that must be further parsed by the
- If enabled can unwrap some of the detected formats: can "extract"
a document from a PKCS#7 envelope or automatically "gunzip" a stream.
Due to a wrong choice of the inner detection library (Droid) WazFormat
has some serious performance issue. Though it is currently used in
production in many projects, users should try to limit the number
of formats detected. Have a look at the examples section of the documentation
on how to do this.
