To create a simple Java 8 application to use to extract text from PDFs and then identify people's names, I have create a simple data application. This can be used as part of a larger Data Processing Pipeline or HDF flow by calling it via REST, Command Line or converting it to a NiFi Processor.

Process

1. We open the file stream for reading (this can be from HDFS, S3 or a regular file system).

2. Then we use Apache Tika's PDF Parser to parse out the text. We also get the metadata for other processing.

3. Using OpenNLP we parse out all the names from that text.

4. Using Google GSON, we then turns the names into JSON for easy usage.

The class PersonName in which package i can found?

That is in com.dataflowdeveloper. It is a one method class I wrote to hold the string.
