I am writing a Java program to extract the abstract of the wikipedia page
given the title of the wikipedia page. I have done some research and found
out that the abstract with be in rvsection=0
So for example if I want the abstract of 'Eiffel Tower" wiki page then I am
querying using the api in the following way.
and parse the XML data which we get and take the wikitext in the tag <rev
xml:space="preserve"> which represents the abstract of the wikipedia page.
But this wiki text also contains the infobox data which I do not need. I
would like to know if there is anyway in which I can remove the infobox data
and get only the wikitext related to the page's abstract Or if there is any
alternative method by which I can get the abstract of the page directly.
Looking forward to your help.
Thanks in Advance

Subject: INFO: Announcing removal of noimages parameter from deprecated
The action=mobileview API was marked as deprecated at the end of the 2019
. As we refactor code relating to this API we have decided to remove
support for its `noimages` parameter which allowed users to request a page
with img tags replaced with spans.
Note: The `noimages` parameter also appeared inside the action=parse API
 however was a no-op. It will no longer appear on action=parse requests
as a result of this change.
For clients wanting to perform img tag removals, this will need to be done
by those scripts themselves, the PHP code is provided for your reference 
If you have any questions or concerns about this change, please feel free
to follow up on the Phabricator ticket .
