Subject Re: Lucene & Solr a one way street?
Date Sun, 13 Mar 2011 21:32:25 GMT
It's good to see this discussion finally happen.  Some things are in Solr
(e.g. faceting, function queries, Yonik's recent join patch, ...) that
probably belong in Lucene.  As someone contributing functionality to
Lucene/Solr in SOLR-2155 (Geospatial search via geohash prefix techniques),
anecdotally I find it most convenient for the code to span both Lucene and
Solr, particularly Solr on the testing side.  (Of course each patch is
different but this is my experience)  The testing infrastructure on the Solr
side is excellent.  As I look to implement sorting it's going to be
difficult to have a non-Solr user take the code since the sorting capability
is wrapped up in Solr concepts like function queries.
