Java Mobi Metadata Editor

Here's a little Java program I wrote, which lets you edit, add, and remove EXTH tags in mobi files. It doesn't have as many features as mobi2mobi, but it suits my needs.

I've only tested it with a couple of non-DRMed files, and it seems to work fine.

It's a standalone program, and doesn't depend on any other programs or libraries (apart from Java, of course).

Enjoy!

Update:
v0.14
- Added Open and Save menu items.
- Lets the user specify the target filename.

v0.13
- Added a Header Info dialog, which details various fields in the PDB header, PalmDOC header, and MOBI header.
- Added in provisions to invoke debug and safe modes from the command line.
- Added in WhisperPrep, which lets users set ASINs and sets the CDEType to EBOK
(to invoke, type "java -cp MobiMetaEditorV0.13.jar cli.WhisperPrep
<input directory> <output directory>").

v0.12
- Added in various OS X-specific features.
- Allow users to specify an input filename on the command line.

v0.11
- Added in language features.

Thanks for the update.
I tried it.Works perfect. Just a small problem: When I changed the language on mobi2mobi and open it with your app to edit metadata it displays language as Unknown(9), etc. The other way around has no problem though. (Actually, this is not a big deal ).

Sorry about that, thomass. I missed some codes out.

Version 0.12 should fix it.

Thank you, gluggy. Your program makes it very easy to change language codes for dictionaries. Nice that the Kindle now automatically selects the right dictionary based on the language.

Can this tool be used to quickly change the PDOC tag to EBOK on mobi files?

I really would rather not take the time to convert them in Calibre... seems like a waste of time and a way to potentially lose ebook data and formatting.

Yes, it can. That was one of the reasons why I wrote this!

Just load up your mobi, look for the row where it says "501 (CDE Type) PDOC", double-click on PDOC, change it to EBOK, click on the Save button, and you're done.

Wow, I REALLY wish I had this the past two days! I wasted hours screwing around with calibre needlessly! Blah! Anyway, thanks for sharing this neat program with us!

This does not work for me. The CDE Type does not get changed. What works is to delete the existing CDE Type and then add a new one with EBOK.

You're welcome! I feel your pain. I went through the same painful process, and that was what prompted me to write this. Calibre is a fantastic program - it's just overkill for this task.

Hmm.. that's strange. This does work for me. Although I did have to press "Enter" after I entered "EBOK", just to make sure that the change was registered.
