Subject [jira] Updated: (SOLR-2339) No error reported when sorting on a field Solr knows you shouldn't sort on.
Date Wed, 02 Feb 2011 02:49:29 GMT


Hoss Man updated SOLR-2339:

    Attachment: SOLR-2339.patch

patch that forces failure for multivalued fields, along with an example of how i think we
should call this behavior change out in CHANGES.txt

this uncovered a lot of tests that were missusing fields declared as multivalued -- BasicDistributedZkTest
and TestDistributedSearch are still failing in this patch, largely because i'm so confused
about how they work it's not even clear to me what schema.xml file they are using to try and
fix it.

> In the past, Solr has relied on the underlying FieldCache to throw an error in situations
where sorting on a field was not possible.  however LUCENE-2142 has changed this, so that
FieldCache never throws an error.
> In order to maintain the functionality of past Solr releases (ie: error when users attempt
to sort on a field that we known will produce meaningless results) we should add some sort
of check at the Solr level.
