Subject [jira] [Commented] (SOLR-2444) support wildcards in fl parameter, improve DocTransformer parsing
Date Tue, 29 Mar 2011 17:55:05 GMT


Hoss Man commented on SOLR-2444:

bq. I think it makes sense because it is the place you select what goes in the output.

part of the complexity here is that in a lot of cases you want the client to specy the "target"
of the transformation, w/o knowing the source.

in your previous example: clients may e in a situation where they know they want the "xxx"
and "score" fields w/o knowing that "xxx" is the result of a transformation from the concrete
"id" field.

In an ideal world, a solr admin named Bob should be able to tell his client Carl that the
"price" field is the one Carl wants to use.  Carl could then query solr with "...&fl=price"
or "...&sort=price desc" w/o ever necessarily knowing that price is really the result
of a function query that takes into account the current exchange rate (or some other factors
driven by a transformer configured in solrconfig.xml for hte handler Carl is querying)

Carl is selecting what data goes in the output, but that doesn't mean carl should (have to)
know where that data comes from
