Subject Re: Solr on Hbase
Date Fri, 15 May 2009 20:18:53 GMT
Thanks for the offer Jay.

Here are list of current 0.20.0 outstanding bugs: *http://tinyurl.com/cgmarz

You any good at webapps?  If so, check out HBASE-1395.

HBASE-1192 is about adapting a cache patch to leverage the experience of the
SOLR folks (Some SOLR lads pointed us at their experience in this area -- we
should leverage their experience).

Otherwise, if good at lucene, etc., checkout the table indexing job under
the mapreduce package.  It works but you might have suggests as to how to
improve; e.g. have it produce indices that could be put under a SOLR

The below sounds sweet.  The SOLR index would be client-side?  How would it
