Subject Re: Should empty xml fields be treated as though they were absent?
Date Wed, 04 Aug 2010 04:36:13 GMT

: name="lastsignindate"></field> which caused a SOLR exception. Is it intended
: that SOLR treats an empty field differently from it simply not being sent at
: all? Or is this just a consequence of how it's coded?

i don't know that it was specificly intended, but it does have it's 
advantages.

The issue of having an optional way to "ignore" empty values has come up 
in the past...

   https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SOLR-1772

...my comments in that issue address a few reasons why i think it would 
make more sense to have it be a new optional UpdateProcessor instead of a 
property of the FieldTypes.
