Subject [jira] Commented: (SOLR-2363) Rename the example "dismax" request handler instance
Date Tue, 15 Feb 2011 14:55:57 GMT


Erick Erickson commented on SOLR-2363:

bq: Though i'm not convinced it really needs changing – we would also need to update all
the documentation that refers to ?qt=dismax

I agree with Jan on this one. I distinctly remember having this confusion, and I've seen it
go round multiple times on the user's list. Interestingly, I can't find anything on the Wiki
where "qt=dismax" is in the text..

bq:  I would suggest we have a qt=dismax that is plain vanilla,

Please no! The whole point is to avoid the confusion over qt=dismax and defType=dismax.

> It is misleading that one of the requestHandlers in the example schema is named the same
as the queryParser "dismax". It creates confusion as to whether the use of defType=dismax
vs qt=dismax. It would be better if the example requestHandler was named e.g. "dismaxexample"
