----------------------------------

             Summary: Allow for types to be set on blur tables
                 Key: BLUR-112
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/BLUR-112
             Project: Apache Blur
          Issue Type: Improvement
    Affects Versions: 0.1.5
            Reporter: Aaron McCurry
             Fix For: 0.1.5


Create the ability for Blur to handle the default Lucene field types.  This should not be
tied to the table descriptor because types should be allowed to be added at runtime.  Also
2 new fields should be added to the TableDescriptor:

1. A strict types attribute.  If set to true, if a new column is added to the table and there
is no type mapping for it.  Throw an exception.  Set to false by default.

2. Default type is strict is set to false.  The default type should be text.

Also, dynamic columns could be allowed if their name included the type.  Such as:

The column name could be "col1" with a type of "int", in the Column struct in thrift the name
would be "col1/int" and if the type did not exist before the call it would be added.

Thoughts?
