Subject [jira] Commented: (SOLR-1397) It should be possible to highlight external text
Date Wed, 08 Dec 2010 20:39:02 GMT


Michael Goddard commented on SOLR-1397:

Agreed!  I've just encountered a situation which begs for the capability to access the Solr
instance that provided my results, which include the primary key for the RDBMS table and the
score.  I would pull the text from the RDBMS table and, hopefully, do an HTTP GET to the Solr
highlight service with the query and this text, and Solr would return the text, highlighted.

Are any other folks interested?  Has there been any work done along these lines?

in a database (or some equivalent).

but it does not support wildcard queries.
