TIKA Document Type Detection

TIKA facade class detect() method is used to detect the document type based on the input file.


In this program, we can detect file type based on the input file.

import java.io.File;
import org.apache.tika.Tika;
public class TikaTypeDetection {

   public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {

      //Suppose hello.txt is in your current directory
      File file = new File("hello.txt");//

      //Instante tika facade class
      Tika tika = new Tika();

      //detect file type using detect method
      String filetype = tika.detect(file);
