Does the Tabulizer package need java to be installed?



Warning in install.packages :
error 1 in extracting from zip file
Warning in install.packages :
cannot open compressed file 'tabulizerjars/DESCRIPTION', probable reason 'No such file or directory'
Error in install.packages : cannot open the connection


It looks like the answer is yes. If you go to a package's canonical page on CRAN, its SystemRequirements: should be listed. Since Java (>= 7.0) is on there, it's required for the package to work.


Yes, you need to install java the install 'rJava' from R studio, then install 'tabulizerjars' !
