Subject [jira] [Resolved] (SOLR-2394) Deprecate "standard" writer type (wt), just say "xml".
Date Wed, 20 Apr 2011 21:52:05 GMT


Hoss Man resolved SOLR-2394.

       Resolution: Fixed
    Fix Version/s: 4.0
         Assignee: Hoss Man

David: sorry .. i also thought this had already been dealt with.

note that i did not replace "standard" with "xml" ... i just flat out removed the (default)
value from the form so it would be blank on submit and use whatever what configured as the
default for the handler.

the less assumptions we make about what handlers/writers are configured the better.

Committed revision 1095526. - trunk
Committed revision 1095527. - 3x

 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.
