Subject FieldType API change proposal -- SOLR-2423
Date Sat, 12 Mar 2011 07:29:59 GMT
I think FieldType should take an Object input rather then String --
this gives FieldTypes the option of using (and reusing) explicit types
in addition to String.  For embedded apps that fill SolrInputDocuments
with real objects, the fields can use objects directly -- this means
that Date does not have to get converted to a String and then back to
a Date.

This is a major API change, but I think the value is worth the trouble.

Thoughts?
