Subject [jira] Created: (SOLR-2394) Deprecate "standard" writer type (wt), just say "xml".
Date Mon, 28 Feb 2011 06:33:36 GMT
Deprecate "standard" writer type (wt), just say "xml".

                 Key: SOLR-2394
             Project: Solr
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: web gui
    Affects Versions: 1.4.1
            Reporter: David Smiley
            Priority: Minor

I think the "standard" writer type being aliased to "xml" is unnecessary and not clear.  In
the full interface screen, imagine you're new to Solr and you look at the "output type" and
you see "standard".  What does that mean?  "xml" is pretty clear.

Assuming it's agreed that "standard" isn't of any value, I suggest that it not necessarily
go away (due to backwards compatibility) but that it's existence is removed from the full
interface screen, replaced with "xml".  Furthermore, a picker list would be a better GUI element
since there are a small limited fixed number of them.

Perhaps this small UI change can be considered for 3.1.  I'll write a small patch if there's
agreement on the idea.
