Subject [jira] Created: (SOLR-1888) Annotated beans source generation with maven plugin
Date Thu, 22 Apr 2010 15:49:50 GMT
Annotated beans source generation with maven plugin

                 Key: SOLR-1888
             Project: Solr
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: clients - java
    Affects Versions: 1.5
         Environment: java, maven
            Reporter: Matthias Epheser
             Fix For: 1.5

As I stumbled over a lot of copy pasting while creating java annotated beans representing
a schema.xml, i decided to make a shortcut and create a maven plugin.

Think about it as source generation similar to castor/jaxb code generation from an xsd. You
just point to a schema.xml and connect to the generate-sources phase. This leads to a java
bean in target/generated-sources/solr that contains all fields from the schema well annotated.

The mapping reads the <fields> section and maps field="string" to solr.StringField to
java.lang String etc. Multivalured fields generate lists, dynamic fields Maps. Currently the
code generation is plain simple, just a fileWriter with some intends. The getValidJavaName(String
name) may act more professional than now.

Just install the plugin contained in the zip using mvn install and connect it to an existing
solrj project:


The generated fiels will be automatically added to the classpath after the first run of mvn
generate/compile. So just execute mvn eclipse:eclipse once after that. After every change
in the schema, generate again and your bean will be updated and fields and getters and setters
will be present.
