Subject [jira] Commented: (SOLR-1123) Change the JSONResponseWriter content type
Date Mon, 30 Aug 2010 18:30:59 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-1123?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12904275#action_12904275

Chris Tucker commented on SOLR-1123:
------------------------------------

I'd like to +1 the short-term fix.  The incorrect content type makes it difficult to filter/transform
the response in a servlet filter or Jetty handler: one has to inspect the wt parameter on
the request to establish (guess?) that JSON has been requested and is being sent back.

> Currently the jSON content type is not used. Instead the palin/text content type is used.
The reason for this as I understand is to enable viewing the json response as as text in the
browser. While this is valid argument, I do believe that there should at least be an option
to configure this writer to use the JSON content type. According to [RFC4627|http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc4627.txt]
the json content type needs to be application/json (and not text/x-json). The reason this
can be very helpful is that today you have plugins for browsers (e.g. [JSONView|http://brh.numbera.com/software/jsonview])
that can render any page with application/json content type in a user friendly manner (just
like xml is supported).
